DEADLINE: National Center for Atmospheric Research Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
April 13, 2012

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) launches its fifth annual NCAR Journalism Fellowship, which runs from 16 – 20 July 2012. The NCAR Journalism Fellowship provides journalists with an opportunity to deepen their understanding and expertise on atmospheric and Earth system sciences. Application Deadline: Friday, 13 April 2012.

Fellows will have an opportunity to learn more about topics such as:

  • Climate change

  • Severe weather

  • Wind and other renewable energy technologies

  • The sun and solar storms (including impacts of space weather on Earth)

  • Air quality

  • Environmental-societal interactions (such as the influence of climate on disease transmission)

  • And applied science (such as pinpointing turbulence for commercial planes and using long-range weather forecasts to help protect vulnerable communities).

NCAR Journalism Fellows will gain access to exciting new Earth science research findings through seminars and meetings with scientists, laboratory visits, and a first-hand look at research tools and facilities.

Our program is a five-day, residential experience open to professional writers, producers, and editors working for print, broadcast, and online media. NCAR will cover costs including airfare, hotel, and transport to-from the Denver Airport and Boulder for the selected NCAR Journalism Fellows. The ideal candidate will have at least five years of writing, producing, or editing experience for a general-interest audience. Freelancers, book authors, and writers from nontraditional media may be considered, but should be able to show a substantial portfolio of work.
