Our coasts are changing. Seas are rising and warming. Storms are intensifying. Fisheries are in jeopardy. Waves offer a potential source of energy for the future. Underlying these global trends are a changing climate and a growing coastal population.
The Oregon coast is the ideal laboratory to study these trends. And scientists from Oregon State University - whose oceanography program is ranked third in the world - are the ideal experts to talk about the natural and human factors affecting our oceans.
You’re invited to join researchers from Oregon State University, state and federal organizations and a community of people on the Oregon coast, for an in-depth, three-day program covering major coastal ocean topics.
The three-day fellowship program includes sessions at Oregon State’s main campus in Corvallis and its Hatfield Marine Science Center on the coast in Newport.
Participation in the program is limited to 12 journalists. Apply online here. The deadline for applications is May 1. Applicants will be notified by May 25 whether they have been accepted.
The program is open to journalists, including freelancers, working for print, broadcast and online media organizations. Oregon State University will provide lodging, meals and local transportation. Your only costs are for travel to and from Oregon State University. Journalists based in countries outside the United States and journalists who are not United States citizens are eligible.
