DCSWA's Professional Development Day: Sign Up Now!
This is our biggest event of the year -- a full day of talks, workshops and networking with other science writers and editors. This year's event will feature:
Where: AGU headquarters, Dupont Circle, DC NW
This year, thanks to a generous grant from the National Association of Science Writers, we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships to cover the full cost of registration for Professional Development Day.
In exchange for a scholarship, we will ask each recipient to blog or live-tweet a PDD session. We will try to enable every scholarship recipient to use the medium and cover the session of his/her choice (but no guarantees). Blog posts will be published, with bylines, on the soon-to-be-revamped DCSWA website. Tweets should include the hashtag #DCSWA15.
To apply for a scholarship, please send an email with your name, resume, and a brief explanation of why you would like a scholarship to PDD (one paragraph is sufficient) to email@example.com. Applications due at midnight on Saturday, March 14. Preference will be given to students, early-career science writers, and those with financial need. We will additionally strive to ensure a diverse group of scholarship recipients.
