2024 SciComm Identities Project (SCIP) Fellowship

Hosted By:
SciComm Identities Project (SCIP)

The SciComm Identities Project (SCIP) Fellowship is a one-year professional development opportunity for pre-tenure faculty at U.S. institutions who identify as underrepresented racial or ethnic minorities. The Fellowship will have a different thematic focus in each of its three one-year cohorts. Each of these foci relates, broadly, to climate change. SCIP Fellows will gain science communication expertise and practice and build their professional networks in ways that may support new collaborations and research insights. The January – December 2024, Cohort 2 will be about Water.

A year-long fellowship developed by University of Rhode Island’s Metcalf Institute, Michigan State University’s Knight Center for Environmental Journalism, and the URI Science & Story Lab to develop your voice and skills as a science communicator through a variety of mediums, including podcasting. SCIP is designed to test a novel science communication training curriculum based in intercultural communication and culturally relevant pedagogy.

The 2024 Fellowship runs January-December, 2024.

Applications are due by September 18th, 2023.
