The Science Media Centre is seeking applicants for an upcoming media skills workshop for scientists to be held in Auckland, 14-15 March. 

These workshops are unique in that they are designed specifically for scientists, and we not only take participants through a series of practical exercises and full-on practice interviews, but also spend time visiting a newsroom, discussing issues with a panel of working journalists and putting perfected story pitches to the test on our media panel, who are often keen to follow up.

STRATUS is offering one scholarship covering full course fees to a qualifying early to mid-career researcher. Preference will be given to a STRATUS or UoA applicant. Please indicate on your application that you are a member of STRATUS. Please also indicate whether you would be able to take up a place on the workshop without the scholarship.

Applications close this February, the 8th February. 

Please contact dacia@sciencemediacentre.co.nz with any queries.
