UW-Madison Offers 2006 Journalism Fellowships on Exploring Nanotechnology

Posted on January 04, 2006

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Materials Research Science and Engineering Center on Nanostructured Interfaces and the School of Journalism and Mass Communication are offering an intensive two-day course and fellowships for journalists interested in exploring the science and engineering of nanotechnology.

The course, to be held March 20-21, 2006 on the UW-Madison campus, is intended to provide hands-on perspective and detailed insight into the rapidly emerging field and its implications for society.

Participants will learn about the latest in nanotechnology from leading scientists and have the opportunity to explore the technology through innovative lab experiences and group discussions. Course participants will access working laboratories and will attend lectures on the science and engineering aspects of nanotechnology, in addition to seminars on current research and its public policy implications.

Twelve selected journalists - including those specializing in science, technology, business and general assignment beats, as well as editors and photojournalists - will receive a stipend to cover course and travel costs. To apply, submit a resume and a letter of application stating your professional interests and reasons for wanting to know more about nanotechnology.

Applications will be accepted through Jan. 31, 2006. Applications may be submitted electronically to For more information, contact Ken Gentry at (608) 263-7128,
