Scores of students participate in Perlman Virtual Mentoring Program

This summer, NASW once again offered its David Perlman Virtual Mentoring Program for graduate and undergraduate students. During the program, more than 85 students were matched with NASW volunteers from a variety of science writing backgrounds for mentorship and support. About half of those students also opted to write a reported piece, with guidance from their mentors, and three students were recognized with NASW Summer Writing Awards.
