Peggy Girshman Idea Grants

National Association of Science Writers (NASW)

Grant Provider's 990

Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #163224

Grant Description

Grants of up to $15,000 to USA, Canada, and International groups and individuals for projects and programs to benefit the science writing field and provide professional development opportunities for writers. Priority will be given to proposals for novel events, projects, and resources that the NASW grants program has not supported in the past.

NASW is committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. NASW is especially interested in projects led by and/or that serve underrepresented audiences and groups. In addition, any funded projects that solicit multiple voices, whether in the form of panels, events, writing compilations, etc. will be expected to showcase a broad diversity of voices from varied perspectives and backgrounds, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, nationality, age, socioeconomic status, and belief. The best proposals will outline plans for diversity, equity, and inclusion in project development, execution, and outreach.

Projects must be in keeping with NASW’s mission, and should be accessible to all U.S.-based science writers.

Eligibility:

  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

NASW invites proposals from individuals or groups.

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

Ineligible:

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. All Idea Grant projects are organized independently of NASW, meaning NASW does not provide web services, event support, or other organizational resources to recipients.

Pre-Application Information:

Please submit your proposal through Submittable by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023.

Applicants will be notified of the Grant Committee’s decision in early Spring, and can expect disbursements to begin soon thereafter, pending grantees’ acceptance of the grant contract. Applicants should take this timeline into account when planning events. In general, Idea Grants may not be used to fund costs already incurred. Only direct costs are allowed. Indirect costs are not allowable. Grants of more than $5,000 will need to be approved by the NASW Executive Board as well as the Grants Committee.
