STAT introduces new fellowship for science reporting [United States]

Journalists from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in the United States can apply for a yearlong fellowship with STAT. This fellowship, called the Sharon Begley-Science Reporting Fellowship, is designed to help early-career journalists excel in science journalism.

The fellowship will run from mid-July 2024 to mid-July 2025 at STAT’s Boston office. The successful candidate will work alongside experienced science and health reporters and editors at STAT, reporting and writing articles for the publication.

The fellow will receive a salary of $75,000, as well as health insurance, 10 days of vacation time, and standard holidays off. The fellowship honors the late Sharon Begley, an acclaimed science writer for STAT who passed away in January 2021 from complications of lung cancer.

To be considered for the Sharon Begley-Science Reporting Fellowship, applicants must have less than three years of experience as a journalist and must be a member of an underrepresented racial or ethnic group in journalism. They must also submit samples of their work and meet certain educational qualifications.

The deadline to apply for this fellowship is April 26th.
