Alumni

A vibrant global community of science storytellers.

Our highly accomplished graduates constitute a who’s who of science journalism around the world. As a result, SHERP students benefit from an extensive, tight-knit network in seeking advice, internships and jobs.

Our mentorship program pairs students with a graduate of their choosing starting in the second semester, but that’s only one of many such opportunities that arise during the 16-month SHERP sequence. Through in-class interactions, internships, speaker events and field trips, SHERP students make dozens of helpful contacts in science journalism by the time they graduate,

Our alums stay connected to SHERP and to each other through the SHERP Alumni Facebook group, where they discuss job opportunities, events and other news; if you’re a graduate of SHERP or a current student, you can join. Almost all of our alumni, students and faculty are on Twitter; you can follow them all with a single click!

A Message to SHERP/SERP Graduates and Friends:

You already know about the sacrifices required to finance a top-flight graduate education. Now you can assist current and future students by contributing to the Bill Burrows SHERP Scholarship Fund. There is no administrative overhead; all proceeds go to tuition-remission scholarships for deserving SHERP students, based on need and achievement. You can make a tax-deductible contribution online via this secure site or can send a check made out to New York University, with ‘Bill Burrows SHERP Scholarship Fund’ written in the lower left corner. The address is: Bill Burrows SHERP Scholarship Fund c/o Carter Journalism Institute, 20 Cooper Square, NY, NY 10003.

And to all our donors, thank you!

Our Alumni, Year by Year

This list includes the current professional position of every SHERP and SERP graduate all the way back to the first class in 1982. (We added the ‘H’ in 2004 to reflect the program’s longtime emphasis on health and medical journalism.) Some listings may be out of date; you can help by sending updates and corrections to sherp.journalism@nyu.edu.
