AAAS/EurekAlert! refocus on China with 2007 Fellowships for Science Reporters in Developing Regions

EurekAlert!, the premier global science-news source, in cooperation with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, after three years is returning its focus on China, identifying six journalists from the region to attend and cover the AAAS Annual Meeting in February.

"Being able to support independent science reporting in China is incredibly meaningful," said Ginger Pinholster, director of AAAS's Office of Public Programs. "In their lifetimes, these promising young journalists will be in a position to tell the story of China's transformation."

Four fellows, all under 35 years of age, were chosen from a pool of reporters nominated by their editors at leading Chinese media organizations.
