Call for volunteers for the Grants Committee

Hey, Science Writers: Are you looking to make a substantive impact on the your colleagues' careers and the field of science writing? Want to work with the fun, dynamic Grants Committee and help with this rewarding volunteer work?

The Grants Committee oversees the NASW Idea Grants program, which funds innovative and well-developed projects that support the professional lives of science writers and/or advance the field of science writing.

The committee currently seeks two new members. If you would like to help us read proposals and collaborate to arrive at decisions on how these funds are awarded, please contact committee chairman Melissa Lutz Blouin at

Special thanks to the Grants Committee volunteers:

Chair: Melissa Lutz Blouin
