STAT introduces new fellowship for science reporting [United States]

The Sharon Begley-Science Reporting Fellowship is a unique opportunity for early-career journalists from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in the United States to apply for a yearlong fellowship with STAT. This fellowship, which takes place from mid-July 2024 to mid-July 2025, will be based at STAT’s Boston office and will provide the successful fellow with a salary of $75,000, health insurance, 10 days of vacation, and standard holidays off.

The fellow will work alongside experienced science and health reporters and editors at STAT to report and write articles for the publication. The program is designed to prepare journalists for a successful career in science journalism by providing them with hands-on experience, mentorship, and training.

The deadline to apply for the Sharon Begley-Science Reporting Fellowship is April 26. The fellowship honors the late Sharon Begley, an acclaimed science writer for STAT who passed away in January 2021 from complications of lung cancer. This fellowship is an excellent opportunity for aspiring journalists looking to break into the field of science journalism while also paying tribute to a beloved figure in the industry.
