Congratulations to Abdullahi Tsanni, ’23, for winning a 2023 Diversity Summer Fellowship from the National Association of Science Writers. Awarded to students and early-career science communicators, the fellowships are designed to supplement any income students receive from summer internships. Abdullahi will be covering biomedical research, equity, and global health issues this summer as a reporting intern for STAT. His internship builds on years of previous experience covering those topics in a freelance capacity for publications including Nature, British Medical Journal (BMJ), and Popular Science. NASW Diversity Summer Fellowships come with a $3,000 stipend to support living expenses throughout the internship, as well as a one-year membership to the National Association of Science Writers, where fellows can access job and mentorship opportunities. Congratulations to Abdullahi and the rest of the 2023 fellows.
