Scholarship for New Zealand Research Science & Technology Journalist

Background The Foundation for Research, Science and Technology and the British Council New Zealand are proud to offer a major scholarship for a New Zealand journalist to attend UK's biggest science festival later this year.

The British Association's (BA) Festival of Science attracts 400 of the best scientists and science communicators in the world. This year the festival runs from 6 - 10 September at the University of Exeter with the theme of 'The responsibility of Being a Scientist'.

About the scholarship The scholarship will enable a New Zealand journalist to attend the festival, as well as spending time with key UK science writers and commentators at either the BBC or the Guardian. The scholarship is worth $7,000.

The purpose of the Scholarship This scholarship has been established to encourage New Zealand journalists to write and/or broadcast more success stories about research, science and technology in New Zealand. It is hoped that this award will give them an international perspective of RS&T, help create linkages between New Zealand and overseas RS&T journalists and result in greater coverage of RS&T in the New Zealand media.
