Environmental reporting training program

The Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental reporting is recruiting journalists for two science training opportunities: the Twelfth Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists, June 6-11, 2010; and a Metcalf Institute Science Seminar for Journalists, March 31-April 1, 2010.

The 12th Annual Workshop offers fellowships for early to mid-career journalists to attend a weeklong science immersion program at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography, a leading marine science research campus. The 2010 program Coastal Impacts: Energy Sources and the Marine Environment, will explore the value of different energy sources in mitigating climate change and how these options affect surrounding environments. A fellowship provides tuition, room and board, some travel support, and one year of membership with the Society of Environmental Journalists.
Applications for the Twelfth Annual Science Immersion Workshop for Journalists must be postmarked by Jan. 18, 2010.

Applications for the Science Seminar for Journalists must be postmarked by Feb. 8, 2010.
