Scholarships to the Kavli Prize awards

Thanks to the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, up to five science journalists will have the opportunity to attend the Kavli Prize in Olso, Norway, Sept. 8-11, 2014. Meet and exchange with the winners of the Kavli Prize awarded in astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience.

Get front row seats at the Award ceremony in presence of HM King Harald V. Take part in all the events. The scientific program will include the laureates’ lectures as well as popular science lectures by some of the world’s leading science communicators.

The scholarships cover the costs of transportation from your own country and your stay in Oslo.


The World Federation of Science Journalists oversees the competition and is solely responsible for the selection of the winning journalists. The jury, a sub-committee of the WFSJ Board, will select the five journalists on the basis of submitted work.

Candidates are asked to submit three articles or audio or video productions on astrophysics, nanoscience or neuroscience in the language of origin, and a one-page essay in English describing why they should be selected and what they will do if they win the competition.

Applications — including the applicant's CV, coordinates, identification pages of the passport — should be sent electronically to:
