*Call for applicants*
As journalism reinvents itself, journalists now need to learn multiplatform technologies, such as podcasting, blogging, digital video and audio. They also need an understanding of subjects that consistently rank high with readers—health, environment, medical research, technology and science.
Only one Fellowship offers the pick of scientific courses at MIT and Harvard, gives audio and video training, and sponsors research trips: The Knight Science Journalism Fellowships at MIT.
Fellows receive a stipend of $60,000 for nine months, plus health coverage. Applications are due March 1. Find application requirements and forms at http://web.mit.edu/knight-science/fellowships/howtoapply.html .
I encourage you to apply, or pass this message along to a colleague who could benefit from a year away from deadlines. With all best wishes,
Philip J. Hilts, Director
