OES Electronic Newsletter Vol. 2, No. 31 Mass Media Fellowships Available to IEEE Student Members.

IEEE Student Members Encouraged to Apply for IEEE-USA/AAAS Mass Media Fellowships.

IEEE-USA is seeking two U.S. IEEE student members to work as reporters, researchers and production assistants in newsrooms across the country during a 10-week mass media fellowship in the summer of 2006.

Administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Fellows must have the ability to explain complex scientific and engineering principles in a way the general public can understand. This program helps strengthen connections between engineers and journalists, and increases public understanding and awareness of science, engineering and technology.

To apply, individuals must be at least a senior in college majoring in mathematics or the natural, physical, health, engineering, computer or social sciences. Fellows receive a weekly stipend of $450. Applications are due by 15 January 2006. Go to http://www.aaas.org/programs/education/MassMedia/ for more information; or contact Stacey Pasco at spasco@aaas.org, or +1 202 326 6441.
