The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Pitts Family Foundation Minority Science Writers Internship Program is now accepting applications from undergraduates who are interested in journalism as a career and who want to learn about science writing.
The internship takes place each summer at the DC headquarters of the AAAS’s Science magazine. Interns spend ten weeks at Science under the guidance of award-winning reporters and editors practicing what science writers do for a living. They have a chance to meet leading scientists, attend conferences and hearings, and cover breaking news. Interns are expected to contribute to all facets of the news operation, including writing bylined articles for the print magazine and online news service, engaging in social media, and contributing to other news products.
The application deadline is February 1st, 2017. For more information, click here.
