Grant given for science institute page 12

By: Editorial Staff The Scripps Howard Foundation will give a $300,000 grant to the Foundation for American Communications and the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., to fund a new science program for journalists.
The new Jack. R. Howard Science Institute for Journalists is named for Jack R. Howard, the late, former president of the E.W. Scripps Company. The Foundation grant includes funding for three years.
The new learning center will provide reporters with an opportunity to improve their understanding of science through an interactive program of teaching, experimentation, writing exercises, and visits to local laboratories. Dr. David Goodstein, vice provost of CalTech., will serve as the institute's director during the first week-long session beginning June 21.
