Since 2008, the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings has provided National Association of Science Writers' members who are working journalists or freelancers the opportunity to apply for the travel grants to its annual Meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany.

This year NASW leadership selected two NASW members to receive this travel funding. The funding covers airfare to Germany, accommodation, and the conference fee.
