for Journalists Announced for 2004

Narragansett, R.I. -- January 8, 2004 --The Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental Reporting is offering 12 fellowships to journalists to work in the field and lab with scientists to study marine and environmental science, resource management and policy implications. The week-long fellowships are structured to provide journalists with a better understanding of the science underlying coverage of environment.
The fellowships are available to working journalists to attend the Sixth Annual Workshop for Journalists, June 20-25, 2004 at the URI Graduate School of Oceanography.

Reporters will have opportunities to talk informally with scientists, attend lectures and debates and learn about scientific integrity, data analysis, research methods, and the complexities of the environment beat.
Applications must be postmarked by March 5, 2004. Fellowships are available to print, broadcast and electronic journalists who are interested in covering the environment.
