FULLY FUNDED TO USA : Check out the Logan Science Journalism Program

A chance to escape story deadlines and get fully immersed in fundamental biological or environmental research is provided by the Logan Science Journalism Programme to science journalists, writers, editors, and broadcast journalists.


The fellows select from two intensive, introductory courses:

Practical Biomedical Research Course
The goal of the course is to give fellows practical laboratory experience using some of the state-of-the-art techniques that underpin fascinating advancements in contemporary biomedical research.
Fellows are offered a rare chance to observe the methodology used by fundamental biomedical researchers at a world-class organisation that advances our knowledge of life at the molecular and cellular levels.

Fellows at the Marine Biological Laboratory will gather, examine, and evaluate data in collaboration with scientists. With two experimental foci—the human microbiome and CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing—the primary focus is on hands-on activities.

Fellows will interpret and present some of their laboratory data to their peers at a mini-symposium at the conclusion of this intense 10-day session. Fellows will spend time at the lab bench as well as engage in formal and informal talks with scientists on a variety of subjects, from the politics and culture of research to the basics of molecular biology.

Hands-on Environmental Research Course
This in-depth course exposes fellows to the scientific measurements and experiments that scientists perform in order to uncover the intricate ways that additional nitrogen affects coastal ecosystems, including their ability to withstand sea level rise and effects on marine life and coastal food webs.

The fellows will measure several aspects of the effects of additional nitrogen on estuary, marsh, and eelgrass ecosystems in the field and in the lab. They will participate in a "space-for-time" ecosystem-scale experiment in Waquoit Bay on Cape Cod, where eutrophication has been brought about by watershed development adding nitrogen.

In order to calculate the nitrogen loading to a nearby estuary, fellows will measure the area. Additionally, samples will be taken to assess how eutrophication affects the plants and animals in food webs and if it boosts or diminishes salt marshes' ability to adapt to sea level rise. They'll collaborate with Marine Biological Laboratory experts to conduct sample analyses, decipher data, and discuss findings to their peers at a mini-symposium.

Don't miss out on the application deadline which is 25th January 2024.

Program Benefits
Logan Science Journalism Programme Fellows receive lodging, meals, transportation to and from Woods Hole, as well as full programme costs for the Hands-On Research Course and other events.
If approved for the programme, foreign nationals will be paid for their visa fees and will need to obtain one.
Eligibility Criteria
- Candidates must be experienced science writers, editors, producers, or journalists with at least three years of professional experience. Applicants without considerable prior experience in scientific research will be given preference. Although not necessary, having a rudimentary understanding of biological concepts and techniques is beneficial.
- Applying to the Environmental Hands-On Research Course is open to journalists who have taken part in the Biomedical Hands-On Research Course, and vice versa.
- We highly encourage applications from underrepresented industries. Applications are open to foreign nationals. If admitted into the programme, foreign nationals need to have a valid visa in order to enter the United States.
