Do you have an interest in documentary film, creative nonfiction, long-form journalism or science communications? Then you’re invited to apply for an OSU Science Media Fellowship, a hands-on, paid learning experience for undergraduate and graduate students from across Oregon State University. We're excited to share that, as of 2023, this program has now merged with the PRAx Student Fellowships.

Fellowship recipients receive a $1,000 scholarship and hands-on mentoring throughout the production process by a media professional.

Visit the PRAx website for more details on application process and deadlines.

How it started

This fellowship program began with the production of the film Saving Atlantis, a feature documentary from staff, faculty and students at Oregon State University. The project was licensed with help from the Office of Commercialization and Corporate Development, and proceeds were placed in a fund via the OSU Foundation, providing the resources for the fellowship awards. 

Our goal is to encourage future science storytellers in a time of unprecedented anthropogenic change, and to provide our fellows with a real-world documentary film experience.
