Council for the Advancement of Science Writing

2017 graduate fellowship applications due by March 19

CASW is now accepting applications for Taylor/Blakeslee University Fellowships for the 2017-18 year.

Underwritten by a grant from The Brinson Foundation, these competitive $5,000 fellowships support professional journalists and students of outstanding ability who are enrolled in graduate-level programs in science writing. They are the only national awards offered specifically to students in U.S. science-writing graduate programs. Since 1996, 86 students have been awarded CASW graduate fellowships.

CASW hopes to notify fellowship winners ahead of April 15, the date accepted students generally must inform graduate programs of their decision to enroll.

Applications may be submitted online through March 19. For details, see this page.
