Since 2000, in conjunction with the AAAS program, IEEE-USA Engineering Mass Media Fellows have backed nine U.S. IEEE undergraduate and gradate students who have helped journalists in print and broadcast fields communicate authoritatively to the public about science, engineering and technology. IEEE-USA Mass Media Fellows have been engaged by such media outlets as “Scientific American,” the “Chicago Tribune” and WNBC-TV. Mass Media Fellows must be at least a senior in college majoring in mathematics; engineering; or the natural, physical, health, computer or social sciences. Fellows review their experiences in the program in articles appearing in the November 2007 INSTITUTE ONLINE and in the November-December 2007 IEEE POTENTIALS. Deadline for applications is Tuesday, 15 January 2008.
