European Geosciences Union Science Journalism Fellowships 2022: (Deadline 17 June 2022)

Details

Applications are open for the European Geosciences Union (EGU) Science Journalism Fellowships 2022. The EGU Science Journalism Fellowship is an annual competition open to professional journalists interested in reporting on ongoing research in the Earth, planetary or space sciences.

EGU Science Journalism Fellowships differ from other science journalism prizes. Rather than awarding a published piece of science reporting, the EGU funds innovative proposals to report on geoscientific research not yet in the public sphere. The award offers journalists the opportunity to follow geoscientists on location to develop an in-depth understanding of their research questions, approaches, findings and motivation. The aim of the fellowship is to promote excellence in geoscience reporting.

They invite proposals from professional, active journalists to report on ongoing research within the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Competitive proposals will:

  • Focus on a topic in the geosciences (including planetary and space sciences) with potential broad public appeal and within the remit of EGU’s scientific divisions.
  • Secondly, Outline an original, well-informed approach to the subject.
  • Lastly, Feature leading Europe-based researchers and/or have European relevance.

Union Science Journalism Fellowships

  • The EGU may award single or multiple fellowships, with a total of up to €5,000 allocated between the selected candidates.
  • In addition, winner(s) will be invited, with travel expenses paid up to €1,000, to attend the EGU General Assembly following completion of their projects to discuss their experience following scientists on location.

Eligibility for Union Science Journalism Fellowships

  • Open to professional journalists interested in reporting on ongoing research in the Earth, planetary or space sciences;
  • They encourage journalists to take gender balance into account in the group of geoscientists they suggest interviewing for their stories.
