The 2016 Jacobs Science Writer Fellowship will bring five science, society or health policy journalists from the US and UK to Zurich, Switzerland, to enhance their understanding of the work and research of the 2016 Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize recipient, a leading international scholar in the field of child development, and to connect these journalists with Swiss premier research institutions. The annual Fellowship, launched in 2015, covers Fellows’ travel and ground costs and includes a five-day program in Zurich from Tuesday, November 29, until Saturday, December 3, 2016. One day will be set aside for individual research and interviews. Fellows are invited to attend the Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize ceremony at the University of Zurich on December 2. The 2016 laureate will be announced in October 2016.
