Science Journalism Fellowships

About KSJ@MIT:

 The Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT seeks to advance science journalism in the public interest by nurturing and enhancing the ability of journalists to accurately and thoughtfully illuminate science and its intersection with human culture.

 Launched in 1983 under the guidance of founding director, Victor McElheny, the program is among the most distinguished journalism fellowships in the world, housed in MIT’s acclaimed Program in Science, Technology, and Society, located in the MIT School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. The KSJ vision was recognized early as an essential one in supporting and developing science journalism by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
