WOODS HOLE, MA – Twelve science journalists have been awarded Logan Science Journalism Fellowships from the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), an internationally known biomedical and environmental research and educational center located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.

Now in its 27th year, the MBL’s Logan Science Journalism Program allows established science journalists from around the globe to “step into the shoes of the scientists they cover” by immersing them in hands-on research.

This year’s fellowship, which runs from May 15-24, will focus on the research of environmental scientists researching global change at the MBL and at the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study site in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest.

Over the years, the Logan Science Journalism Program has granted fellowships to hundreds of journalists from news organizations, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Science, National Public Radio, The Washington Post, USA Today, CNN, and Scientific American. Overseas journalists from Africa, Brazil, Sweden, India, Japan, and the United Kingdom, have also participated.

This year’s course is directed by Dr. Christopher Neill, director of the MBL’s Ecosystems Center and Angela Posada-Swafford, science writer/producer, author, and U.S. Correspondent for Muy Interesante magazine.
