BSA Media Fellowship Scheme Review

The British Science Association’s Media Fellowship scheme offers researchers placement opportunities and media outlets such as the BBC, Guardian and Financial Times.

The programme has been running since 1987 and has been reviewed and revised extensively. For this periodic review as well as looking at the scheme’s quality, we took more of a strategic consultancy perspective.

As a result of this, we examined issues such as sponsor expectations and benefits, potential new placement hosts and programme growth and sustainability and made recommendations for the future of the scheme in each of these areas.

We reviewed this BSA scheme and looked at stakeholder expectations.
