Knight Science Journalism at MIT
exploring science, technology, medicine and the environment
Twenty-six years ago, the leadership of the Institute saw the chance to have an impact on the quality of journalism and took it. Today the Knight Science Journalism Fellowship remains the only one of its kind in the world — a yearlong fellowship for journalists who report on science subjects. The program succeeds largely because the dual nature of MIT — as both a hotbed of cutting-edge research and an open, experimental forum for ideas — makes Fellows feel welcome and engaged.
"We bring experienced journalists from around the world to drink from a great fount of firsthand knowledge — in science, medicine, technology, and environmental studies. And quite a few say it's the best year of their lives."
— Philip J. Hilts, Fellowship Director.
