Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists

Each year Metcalf Institute awards fellowships to ten journalists to attend its Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists. Metcalf Fellows are selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants from all over the world, including freelance journalists and staff from a variety of large and small media organizations in all types of media.

metcalf-20yearsstamp-900The Metcalf workshop will celebrate its 20th year in 2018. In the past two decades, Metcalf Institute’s signature training has helped more than 200 journalists sharpen their research and reporting skills by putting them directly in the field, laboratory, and classroom to gain a deeper understanding of how scientists approach, conduct, and analyze their research.

The Metcalf Fellowship provides critical context for environmental stories, builds journalists’ confidence in translating complex scientific data, and gives them a unique opportunity to engage with leading scientists. Metcalf Fellows gain invaluable insights from networking with scientists and other journalists. Most importantly, they leave the workshop with the background, tools, and sources to break stories on a range of science and environmental topics.

The workshop is held on the shores of Narragansett Bay at the URI Graduate School of Oceanography, one of the nation’s premier research institutions with a global reputation for excellence in marine research and exploration of the world’s oceans and coasts.

Stay tuned for the call for applications for 2018 Annual Workshop Fellows.
