Apply for Science Writers 2014 Diversity Travel Fellowship

We’re happy to announce the DiverseScholar National Association of Science Writers (NASW) Diversity Travel Fellowship. Sponsored by a generous NASW Idea Grant, these travel awards (5 at $1,000 each) were created to encourage underrepresented minorities in science journalism to attend the ScienceWriters2014 conference (October 17-21; Columbus, OH). Deadline to apply is Wednesday September 3 at 11:55 pm PST using this online application. U.S.-based underrepresented minority journalists are encouraged to apply especially African-, Hispanic-, and Native-Americans who have journalism experience in STEM, medicine, health, environment, technology, etc.

Learn about the conference from these recaps about ScienceWriters2013 from CASW and KSJ Tracker. Prepare for the conference with advice from SciLance and Open Notebook.

This is a new project with collaborator Danielle Lee, PhD and continues our activities to increase diversity in the science communication workforce (#DivSciWri #scioDiversity).
