Applications for our inaugural Diversity Fellowship are due April 1. The fellowship is for students and early-career science writers undertaking summer science journalism internships. Two fellows will receive $5,000 to supplement any stipends they receive from their summer employer. The fellowship is open to any underrepresented minority who intends to complete a science-journalism internship during the summer of 2017.

NASW and other organizers of the 10th World Conference of Science Journalists (WCSJ2017) unveiled details of the upcoming event at an information session held today at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Announcements included program themes, new plenary speakers, an initiative to serve attendees from Latin America and the Caribbean, pre- and post-conference activities, an update on conference fundraising, and travel fellowships.
