This 10 week paid fellowship places Spanish speaking scientists at media organizations such as Univision and CNN Español to work as science journalists for the summer. Fellows use their academic training in the sciences as they research, write and report today's headlines in Spanish, while sharpening their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to the public. The Fellowship experience broadens the fellow's career path while increasing the public's understanding of science and technology. Spanish speaking students and postdocs in science, mathematics and engineering are eligible to apply.

AAAS serves the growing Latino populations of the US by supporting science communication and education in the language of their communities. The recruitment of Spanish Language Fellows helps bring science news to the mainstream Spanish news outlets to share with Spanish speaking communities. AAAS is excited to be continuing the program for the 2017 Fellowship year.
