STAT introduces new fellowship for science reporting [United States]

A yearlong fellowship for early-career journalists from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in the United States is available through STAT. The fellowship, named after the late Sharon Begley, a renowned science writer for STAT who passed away in January 2021 from complications of lung cancer, aims to prepare journalists for successful careers in science journalism.

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

The successful fellow will receive a salary of $75,000, as well as health insurance, 10 days of vacation, and standard holidays off. The deadline to apply for the Sharon Begley-Science Reporting Fellowship is April 26.
