Francisco Guerrero-Bolano, a Ph.D. candidate in the OSU College of Forestry, will spend 10 weeks this summer with CNN Español in Miami as an American Association for the Advancement of Science Mass Media fellow.

The annual, highly competitive Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellowship program places science, engineering and mathematics students from around the United States at leading media organizations nationwide.

Guererro-Bolano is one of 20 students chosen for the fellowship and the only native Spanish speaker.

By reporting, writing and editing for publications and broadcast stations, fellows hone their communication skills and learn how to make scientific and engineering issues more relatable to the public.

Guerrero-Bolano is an aquatic biologist who is pursuing his doctorate in sustainable forest management and water resources science.
