The next application period for the Logan Science Journalism Program will open in late 2021. Check back here for application materials!

Limited fellowships will be awarded for 2022 to accommodate 2020 fellows who deferred attending. The dates of the 2022 program are May 31-June 10 (fellows arrive on the 31st and depart on the 10th).

Eligibility guidelines are posted here. Along with an MBL application, candidates will submit the following:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Statement (not to exceed 600 words) describing your journalistic experience and professional goals, and explaining how this fellowship will benefit your career.
  • Brief description of prior scientific laboratory or research experience.
  • Four samples of your science writing and editing (text, audio, video, or multimedia). Samples must be in English (can be translations). At least two samples should have been published within the prior two years. Broadcast samples should be 30 minutes or less. Editors or broadcast directors are asked to include brief descriptions of their involvement with each sample.
  • Two letters of recommendation. If possible, one should be from a current or recent supervisor of your professional work.
