Application Window Opens for WCSJ2017 Travel Fellowships

Thanks to generous support from foundations, science and media organizations, and individual donors, WCSJ2017 is excited to offer travel fellowships for professional and student attendees from the U.S. and abroad.

These fellowships are intended to enable those who otherwise could not attend to join us for the conference in San Francisco, October 26-30, 2017. The grants will provide full or partial support to cover economy airfare, accommodation for the duration of the conference, and reasonable ground transport, up to a maximum amount based on the traveler’s location and circumstances. Fellowship recipients will receive complimentary meeting registration.

WCSJ2017 is grateful to the William K. Bowes, Jr. Foundation, donors to the David Perlman fund, the Rutter Foundation, the National Association of Science Writers, Nature UK, Annual Reviews, the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing, Taylor & Francis, the Waterloo Global Science Initiative, and Newswise for supporting these travel grants.

Applications will be accepted until March 15, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by April 15 to allow for plenty of time to plan travel and acquire any necessary visas. Selected fellows will be informed of the exact amount of funding offered at the time of notification. For information on eligibility and to submit your application, visit the Travel Fellowships page.
