The ABSW Media Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for practising scientists, clinicians, and engineers to spend two to six weeks working at the heart of a media.  They give scientists the confidence to engage with the media, tackle mistrust and misrepresentation, bridge the gap between journalists and scientists, and build understating between science and society. The British Science Association (BSA) ran the scheme from 1987 – 2020,  with the ABSW taking stewardship of the scheme in 2022.
