Ten Chinese reporters receive AAAS Fellowships

AAAS, the science society, has named 10 outstanding young Chinese reporters to receive the first ever AAAS Fellowships for Reporters in Developing Regions.

Winning entries chronicled researchers' frantic efforts to combat the SARS virus; the return of talented, established Chinese scientists to the mainland; Chinese stem-cell research; nanotechnology advances; and more. Reports by the winning Fellowship recipients were disseminated by such diverse media outlets as Reuters Television of Beijing; Nanfang Zhoumo; China Youth Daily; and Xinhua News, among others.

"The 10 winning Fellowship recipients represent a strong balance of national and regional media outlets, as well as broadcast, print, online, trade and mainstream media outlets, and thus, truly reflect science journalism throughout China as a whole," said Shere Abbott, AAAS's Chief International Officer. "Through this new program, AAAS seeks to encourage the accomplishments of promising young journalists who are accurately conveying scientific issues of critical importance to the public -- from sustainable development to vaccine research."

Established to support best practices in science journalism, the new Fellowship program is being made possible through generous support from the William T. Golden Endowment Fund for Program Innovation.
