Open Notebook offers Sharon Dunwoody mentoring program

THE Open Notebook, with support from the Science Sandbox and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, is inviting applications for its Sharon Dunwoody Science Journalism Mentoring Program.

The program aims to increase the diversity of voices covering science.

Selected participants will be paired with a mentor who will help in providing the skills and community support to help participants do their best work in covering science.



    Participants will work towards a concrete, actionable goal which includes pitching or writing articles for publication, or learning and gaining experience in a new skill such as podcasting, or something else.

    Science journalists from underrepresented communities including people of color, LGBTQ+ people, people from the Global South, and people with disabilities can apply for a mentoring program.

    This is a free, nine-month program that will run from May 3, 2023, to February 3, 2024.

    The deadline for the submission of applications is March 17, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
