Apply by March 15, 2017

Thanks to generous support from foundations, media organizations, and individual donors, the 10th World Conference of Science Journalists is excited to offer travel fellowships for professional and student attendees from the U.S. and abroad.

These fellowships are intended to enable those who otherwise could not attend to join us for the conference in San Francisco, October 26-30, 2017. The grants will provide full or partial support to cover economy airfare, accommodation for the duration of the conference, and reasonable ground transport, up to a maximum amount based on the traveler’s location and circumstances. Fellowship recipients will receive basic complimentary meeting registration.

Applications will be accepted until March 15, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by April 15 to allow for plenty of time to plan travel and acquire any necessary visas. Selected fellows will be informed of the exact amount of funding offered at the time of notification.

Visit wcsj2017.org/fellowships for details on each type of fellowship and a link to apply.

Bowes, Jr. Foundation, donors to the David Perlman fund, the Rutter Foundation, the National Association of Science Writers, Nature UK, Annual Reviews, the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing, Taylor & Francis, the Waterloo Global Science Initiative, and Newswise for supporting these travel grants.
