DEADLINE: NASW Peggy Girshman Idea Grants

Event Date: 
February 12, 2024

The National Association of Science Writers (NASW) Grants Committee is now accepting applications for a new round of Peggy Girshman Idea Grants.

NASW invites proposals from individuals or groups for grants of up to $15,000 to support projects and programs that will help science writers in their professional lives or benefit the field of science writing.

Project funds should not support individual works, such as underwriting a single investigative piece or book, but could, for instance, underwrite a study of the state of science writing in the United States or a resource for science writers or a workshop on covering science for general assignment reporters. All Idea Grant projects are organized independently of NASW, meaning NASW does not provide web services, event support, or other organizational resources to recipients.

Applicants need not be NASW members, and the committee welcomes proposals from all public information officers, journalists, freelance writers, and other interested parties. Applicants located outside of the United States may apply, but all proposals must be aligned with NASW’s mission and projects must demonstrate a clear benefit to U.S.-based science writers.

Applications are due on Feb. 12, 2024.
