Looking for student science writers


Are you a student interested in science journalism? PSI has a great opportunity for up to five student writers to help us report science stories from the April 4-6 Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference in Seattle. Students will receive free conference admission as well as a $125 stipend in exchange for in-depth reporting on selected presentations and sessions at the conference. Graduate students with a science background and writing experience will be given first priority, but all students are welcome to apply. Writers will be asked to attend one orientation meeting in Seattle prior to the conference. Please send a resume and up to three writing samples by February 13th to Puget Sound Institute Managing Editor Jeff Rice at jeffrice (at) uw.edu. Published articles will appear in our online magazine Salish Sea Currents.
