Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 Smith/Patterson Fellowship. The Smith/Patterson Fellowship is designed for early health/science journalists and communicators. The fellowship helps a currently-enrolled or just graduated Master’s student gain hands-on experience in communicating science, health, and technology through hand-on experience with real-world projects. The fellowship program challenges motivated students to organize, analyze, and disseminate technical information using a variety of tools and channels to inform the public about current health innovations, discoveries and social challenges, as well as those on the horizon.
The fellow will work staff and faculty in the Health Communication Research Center (HCRC), which is part of the Missouri School of Journalism, over summer 2014. The fellow is expected to work full-time during the summer session and a modest stipend is available to help cover living expenses.
