Reposted announcement from the National Assoc of Science Writers:

2005 NASW Internship Fair

Science writing students looking for great internships, or news and science
organizations looking for top-flight interns should sign on for the 2005
NASW Internship Fair. The fair will be held Sunday, Feb. 20 from 9 a.m. to
Noon at the 2005 AAAS meeting in Washington, D.C. at the Marriott Wardman
Park, Balcony A.

This year, there will be a pre-fair meeting for prospective interns and any
interested internship coordinators. The planning meeting will be held
Wednesday, Feb. 16 from 7:30-8:30 a.m. at the NASW Workshops at the Cafritz
Conference Center, George Washington University. The purpose of the meeting
is to help students and recruiters prepare for the 2005 NASW Internship
Fair experience. Because of heavy demand, the fair has adopted a
speed-dating format. Prospective interns are expected to meet with each
recruiter and will have only a short amount of time to meet with each. (The
amount of time per interview will be determined by the number of students
signing up for the fair.) The meeting will preview the fair and how the
process will work; fair coordinators will provide help and tips for a
successful experience. Information about the recruiters who've signed up to
participate in the 2005 fair will be posted on the NASW web site at
as the information becomes available. Students must sign up in advance of
the fair for available time slots with recruiters. The Feb. 16 pre-meeting
is an opportunity to sign up early.

Just an FYI that the National Cancer Institute Office of Cancer Communications has 6 month
graduate internships in health communications. I believe the deadline is oct. 1, and a graduate student who completed it recently said it was a fantastic way to help him understand a facet of science writing.
