MRS Meeting Scene—Call for Reporters and Bloggers

Graduate students and post-docs who are interested in contributing to the 2021 MRS Fall Meeting Meeting Scene newsletter and the Meeting Blog, either on-site (November 29-December 2, 2021) or virtually (December 6-8, 2021), are encouraged to apply. 

Call for MtgSc repts-blog

Reporters will be required to attend talks in a variety of symposia and write brief summaries (100-250 words) of four talks each day; bloggers will be required to post at least five items per day and also tweet about their experiences at the meeting. Reporters and Bloggers will have their registration reimbursed up to the student rate. In addition, on-site volunteers will receive a stipend of $50 toward their on-site expenses.

To apply, please send an email to newseditor@mrs.org stating your qualifications and your reasons for wanting to report or blog for us. We need only four reporters and four bloggers, so we will not be able to accept everyone who applies. Apply now! We look forward to hearing from you!
