Entries for Kavli Prize journalism scholarships close January 15

The World Federation of Science Journalists is offering five international scholarships for journalists to attend the Kavli Prize week in Oslo (1-6 September, 2018). The Kavli Prize has been awarded every two years since 2008 in astrophysics, nanoscience, and neuroscience. The prize consists of 1 million US dollars in each field, and a gold medal presented by the King of Norway.

The winners of the journalism scholarships will get the opportunity to interview the laureates and have access to all the events, including the award ceremony and the banquet. The scholarships cover travel, registration fees and accommodation, with support from The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, The Kavli Foundation and the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research. Entries close Monday 15 January, and application details are available here.
