STAT introduces new fellowship for science reporting [United States]

Journalists from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups who are just starting their careers in the United States have the chance to apply for a yearlong fellowship with STAT. The fellowship, known as the Sharon Begley-Science Reporting Fellowship, is designed to help journalists develop a successful career in science journalism.

The fellowship will take place from mid-July 2024 to mid-July 2025 at STAT’s Boston office. The successful fellow will work alongside experienced science and health reporters and editors at STAT to produce articles for the publication.

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

The deadline to apply for the Sharon Begley-Science Reporting Fellowship is April 26.
