The 2019 World Conference of Science Journalists – a biennial event held next year in Lausanne – is inviting applications for travel fellowships to enable journalists to attend who might not otherwise be able to.
The conference is the flagship event of the World Federation of Science Journalists, and attracts thousands of journalists, editors and associated professions from around the world. For a run-down of the 2017 San Francisco conference, check out this blog post.
The fellowships are open to “Anyone who actively writes, edits or produces science news, information or commentary for an independent media, working as staff employee or freelance journalist, or is a member of one national Member Association belonging to WFSJ, and who normally would be unable to attend the Conference without financial assistance.” In Australia, the Member Association is the Australian Science Communicators.
