Fellows work for 10 weeks during the summer as reporters, researchers, and production assistants in mass media organizations nationwide. As part of their job, the student-scientists and their host-journalists strive to make science news easy for the public to understand. AAAS typically selects from 15-20 Mass Media Fellows each summer. Fellows are provided a weekly stipend of $450 as well as travel expenses to and from AAAS and their sites. Applicants must be enrolled as university students or have completed a degree in the natural, physical, health, engineering, computer, or social sciences or mathematics in order to apply.
