Scholarship Description: The Knight Science Journalism program at MIT has several key parts: The full-year Fellowships, the short course workshops (called “boot camps”) in specific subjects, and the blog called the KSJ Tracker. The nine-month Fellowships have now trained 301 journalists from every continent. Non-U.S. fellows have been appointed since 1984, and now typically comprise half of each class. Graduates of the program continue to move up, to win prizes (including the Pulitzer), and to extend their work to new levels (including 170 books by the latest count). One former Fellow has headed the “NOVA” public television series since 1984. The program’s second major activity, the short courses on urgent topics launched ten years ago, continue at the rate of three per year, of which two are attended by the nine-month Fellows. Enlisting a large fraction of the leading science journalists, the short courses have trained 318 of them.
