NASW Awards $15,000 in Idea Grants

Congratulations to Delger Erdenesanaa, Alex Ip, and Claudia López Lloreda, who are recipients of this year’s Diversity Summer Fellowships. The fellowships support underrepresented minorities completing a science communication internship in any medium over the summer. The $5,000 award is intended to offset the costs associated with pursuing an internship and supplement any stipend they receive from their summer employer. 


NASW has awarded $15,000 in the latest round of its Peggy Girshman Idea Grant program. The awards will support three projects aiming to empower science writers and communicators to more effectively reach diverse audiences and express and manage pandemic-related mental health issues.
