Grants support projects for science writers [Worldwide]

Posted on Dec 18, 2023 in Diversity and Inclusion

Journalists and freelance writers can apply for a US$15,000 grant.

The National Association of Science Writers (NASW) is accepting applications and proposals for the Peggy Girshman Idea Grants. The grants support projects and programs that will help science writers in their professional lives and/or benefit the field of science writing.

The NASW Grants Committee is interested in projects led by and/or that serve underrepresented audiences and groups. The best proposals will outline plans for diversity, equity, and inclusion in project development, execution, and outreach.

The committee would like to see projects that will have a wide impact on the field and applicants who carefully consider how funded work will be sustained beyond the award period.

International applicants are welcome, but proposals must demonstrate a clear benefit to U.S.-based science writers.

The application deadline is Feb. 12, 2024.
