‣ The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is once again offering EGU Science Journalism Fellowships for journalists to report on ongoing research in the geosciences. Successful applicants will receive up to €5000 to cover expenses related to their projects.

‣ Now in its 4th year, the successful and ever more popular EGU Science Journalism Fellowship aims to promote excellence in the reporting of geoscientific research.

The award is intended to allow journalists to follow geoscientists on location and to develop an in-depth understanding of their research questions, approaches, findings and motivation.

Eligibility




‣ The  EGU Science Journalism Fellowships is now inviting proposals from professional, active journalists to report on ongoing research within the Earth, planetary and space sciences.

‣ Competitive proposals will

  1. focus on a topic in the geosciences (including planetary and space sciences) with potential broad public appeal,
  2. preferably feature leading Europe-based researchers, and
  3. outline an original, creative and well-informed approach to the subject. They particularly encourage applicants to submit proposals to report on new and exciting research areas that the wider public may be less familiar with.
