Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to USA groups and individuals for projects and programs to benefit the science writing field and provide professional development options for writers.

GrantWatch ID#:

GrantWatch ID#: 163224

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$25,000

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grants of up to $15,000.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

NASW invites proposals from individuals or groups.

Project funds do 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 handbook 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.

Applicants are not required to 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.

Pre-Application Information:

Please submit your proposal through Submittable by 11:55PM ET on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
