The British Science Association (BSA) Media Fellowships offer practising scientists, clinicians and engineers a unique opportunity to spend three to six weeks working at the heart of media outlet such as The Guardian, BBC and the Nature News.
From the number of applicants, ten media fellows are selected and mentored by professional journalists to learn how the media operate and report on science, how to communicate effectively with the media and how to engage the public with science through different forms of media communication.
After their placements, fellows would have the chance to work alongside a range of media organisations during the British Science Festival – a fantastic opportunity to learn from a wide range of public engagement activities and establish their very own network of connections with academics, journalists and science communications.
Understanding of how to get your research across accurately with minimal ‘spin’, experience writing for different audience and boosting your self-confidence are examples of the positive impacts from participating in the fellowship.

The programme aims to give scientists, engineers and their colleagues, the confidence and willingness to engage with the media and tackle issues of mistrust and misrepresentation and to give journalists access to new scientific expertise.
The scheme has been running since 1987 and reflects the British Science Association's commitment to increasing the accessibility of the sciences and providing opportunities for discussion and debate.
The fantastic scheme is the only one of its kind in the UK.
