The fellowships enable journalists to report, in any European language, on ongoing research in the Earth, planetary or space sciences, with successful applicants receiving up to €5,000 to cover expenses related to their projects.
EGU Science Journalism Fellowships differ from other science journalism prizes. Rather than awarding a published piece of science reporting, the EGU funds innovative proposals to report on geoscientific research not yet in the public sphere. The award offers journalists the opportunity to follow geoscientists on location to develop an in-depth understanding of their research questions, approaches, findings and motivation. The aim of the fellowship is to promote excellence in geoscience reporting.
- Open to professional, active journalists to report on ongoing research within the Earth, planetary and space sciences.
Duration and Benefits:
- The EGU may award single or multiple fellowships, with a total of up to €5,000 allocated between the selected candidates. The award is not to function as a salary or to cover applicants’ wages, but rather to fund all or partial expenses related to their projects. The award can, for example, cover travel-related costs, such as flights and accommodation, as well as expenses related to video, audio or photography. Winner(s) will receive part of the award in advance and part upon successful completion of their project(s).
- In addition, winner(s) will be invited, with travel expenses paid up to €1,000, to attend the EGU General Assembly following completion of their projects to discuss their experience following scientists on location.
