Science Magazine's 2011 Minority Science Writers Internship

Science is a global activity, but the demographics of the journalists who cover it don't reflect that diversity. The Minority Science Writers Internship is for undergraduate students who are interested in journalism as a career and who want to learn about science writing.

The internship takes place each summer at the Washington, D.C., headquarters of AAAS's Science magazine, the largest interdisciplinary journal in the world. Interns spend 10 weeks at Science under the guidance of award-winning reporters and editors, and have a chance to experience what science writers do for a living. Interns are expected to contribute to the weekly news section, including bylined articles in the print and electronic news service.

The paid internship includes travel costs to and from the internship site in Washington, D.C. Living accommodations and expenses are the responsibility of the intern. The internship runs from June to mid-August.

The 2011 summer program application deadline is March 1, 2011. Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate academic program when they submit their application. Please download an application, which includes instructions on submission, at

Agenda for Internship II

Internship II
November 9, 2010

Be sure to sign in.

If you do *not* yet have a yellow book, please take one.

Note: If you already have a yellow book—even if you haven’t brought it with you today—then please do not take another. We are budgeted for one book per student. Therefore, if you already have a copy from our last meeting, please use that.

Please note that the yellow book is also available in its entirety on the English Department website as a PDF file. Get it; read it.

Due to extenuating circumstances, we have extended the deadline for submitting Internship Applications to Friday, December 3.

Here is the specific language: “In order to be eligible for the deadline extension to Friday, December 3, applicants must otherwise be entirely eligible and must have completed all other portions of the Internship Application (including attendance at both internship sessions, determination of academic eligibility, and an oral agreement with a faculty supervisor). Students must also be engaged actively in the process of finding an internship, meaning phone calls have been made and emails sent (evidence to be provided, upon request, to faculty supervisor). If the final application is not completed and received by the KU English Department before noon on Friday, December 3, it will be rejected.”

Don’t wait to register for Pro Sem! Even if you have not yet submitted your internship application, you should still register for Pro Sem ASAP.

Don't wait until December 3 to submit your Internship Applications. Submit them as they are completed.

Raise your hands:
How many of you have found an internship for Spring 2011?

For those that have:
Share your situation. What did you find? Where? How did you find it?
