AAAS and EurekAlert! announce winners of the 2006 Fellowships for Reporters from Developing Regions

ociety section.

These winners will receive full support to attend and cover the 2006 AAAS Annual Meeting, America's largest general science conference, which will take place 16-20 February in St. Louis. Airfare, hotel costs, meals and other travel expenses will be fully covered by the AAAS Fellowships, sponsored this year by EurekAlert! and AAAS.

EurekAlert! and AAAS will celebrate this year's winners during a party -- for Annual Meeting press registrants only -- to be co-hosted by the International Science Writers Association and the World Federation of Science Journalists, on Saturday, 18 February. For general or press registration, go to www.aaasmeeting.org.

Some 1,000 press registrants from around the world are expected to cover the AAAS Meeting this year. The AAAS Fellowships for Reporters from Developing Regions, a program now in its third year, is intended to encourage outstanding young science reporters.

Fellowships to support promising young science reporters from developing regions of the world were first established by AAAS thanks to a generous seed grant from the William T. Golden Endowment Fund for Program Innovation. (See www.aaas.org/news/press_room/reporterfellowship.shtml.) During its first year, the program brought 10 young Chinese reporters, as well as one from South Africa, and another from Brazil to cover the 2004 AAAS Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington.

A second year of the program -- administered by AAAS and its editorially independent Web site for reporters, EurekAlert! -- was made possible through the generosity of The Global Alliance for Vaccines & Immunization (GAVI), The Vaccine Fund and the Rotavirus Vaccine Program (RVP), an affiliate of PATH. Reporters from Africa participated in the 2005 AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
