UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Aara'L Yarber wants to bridge a critical gap she sees in journalism — localized news tailored to Black communities. Through a National Science Foundation (NSF) internship this fall, the meteorology and atmospheric science doctoral candidate said she hopes to be able to do just that.  

Recently, Yarber was selected to be a part of the NSF INTERN program, which provides graduate students in science and engineering with experiential learning opportunities through research internships in non-academic settings. 

Yarber, an experienced science writer, said she is hoping to expand her journalism skills to include more on-the-ground reporting during her time in Atlanta. She is also hoping to take her skills and push it in a visual direction with her work.
