Established in 1983, the Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT — colloquially known as KSJ@MIT — seeks to nurture and enhance the skills of a select breed of journalist: Those who toil at the complex and often fractious intersection of science and public life. The centerpiece of this effort is our 9-month fellowship program, which brings together a small group of elite journalists from across the globe for two semesters of study, intellectual growth and exploration at MIT, Harvard, and other institutions in Cambridge and greater Boston. The program is now considered to be among the most distinguished journalism fellowships in the world, and KSJ@MIT has evolved to include a variety of grants, publications, and other resources aimed at fostering vigorous, accurate and independent coverage of the sciences.
The Knight Science Journalism Fellowship Program supports a global community of dedicated and thoughtful journalists specializing in science, health, technology and environmental reporting. The program is designed to recognize journalists who demonstrate a high level of professional excellence and accomplishment as well as a long-term commitment to their craft. Journalists from all countries compete on an equal basis and are encouraged to apply.
