Climate & Health Communications & Research program for scientists & researchers

The Climate & Health Communications and Research program, at the University of Massachusetts Boston (UMB), in collaboration with The Conversation, is offering 10 seats to researchers and faculty at UMB and at the Climate Change Institute (CCI at UMaine). Attendees selected will participate in workshops dedicated to training scientists in best practices in connecting with journalists and communications professionals, especially in the event of a publication, but also as a routine part of scientists' professional lives, serving as expert commentators on news stories.


In order to apply, attendees must be affiliated with UMB or CCI and must commit to attending 6 workshops in person or remotely either in the fall of 2023, or spring of 2024. Attendees will receive a small stipend (up to $500) and special access to expert fellows of the program—journalists, editors and communications experts—as well as materials produced during the workshops. Successful applicants should be involved in research in climate or environmental science, public health, planetary health or related fields.

Attendees can choose either a fall or spring fellowship term:
October 1st to December 31st (fall 2023)

February 1st to May 30th (spring 2024)

Interested candidates should fill an application by September 30th, 2023. Additional questions can be directed to the program director, Dr. Alexander More
