Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT announces 2019-20 fellowship class
Ten top journalists from seven countries will spend an academic year studying at MIT.
“This is a tremendous group of journalists doing work that has real impact. I think they’ll find that Cambridge is really a unique and inspiring place to learn and grow as a science journalist.”
— Deborah Blum, KSJ program's director
The Knight Science Journalism program at MIT, an internationally renowned mid-career fellowship program, is proud to announce that 10 elite science journalists representing seven countries and four continents will make up its class of 2019-20.
The fellows, selected from more than 120 applicants, are an award-winning and diverse group. They include accomplished reporters from the Des Moines Register and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, veteran editors of international outlets like the BBC and New Scientist, and a freelance journalist who was recently named the European Science Writer of the Year.
The fellows will come to Cambridge for a 10-month fellowship that allows them to explore science, technology, and the craft of journalism in depth, to concentrate on a specialty in science, and to learn at some of the top research universities in the world.
