Apply now for a Lindau Travel Fellowship

For the ninth year in a row, the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings invites NASW members who are working journalists, editors, or freelancers to apply for travel funding to attend the Lindau Meeting. This year, the Council will administer the entire application, selection, and travel process. Applications are due directly to the Council on Friday, April 1.

The 66th Meeting of Nobel Laureates, which this year is an interdisciplinary meeting dedicated to physics, takes place June 26-July 1, 2016, in Lindau, Germany. These meetings bring together Nobel Laureate scientists with hundreds of young researchers for numerous lectures, panels, discussion sessions, and master classes, as well as a diversified program of fringe events, and NASW members are invited to join in the conversations. Thirty Nobel Laureates have already announced their participation, to be joined by 400 young researchers from approximately 80 countries. To learn more about the meetings, visit the Lindau Meetings website, which includes a list and profiles of the attending Nobel Laureates.

The funding covers roundtrip economy airfare to a nearby international airport, accommodation, and the conference fee. Meals and ground transport (e.g. train transfers and taxis) are not covered, but some meals are included in the program, and media are invited to all open events. Participants may book additional nights or travel at their own expense.

To apply, please send your application consisting of a short CV and a motivation letter indicating your specific journalistic interests by email to christian.schumacher@lindau-nobel.org no later than Friday, April 1.
