The Chen Science Writer Fellowship helps to extend the value of discussions taking place at science meetings and conferences by summarizing the conversation, highlighting key themes and promoting innovative research presentations.
- To increase the value of the scientific discussions at each meeting beyond just those who attended.
- To offer exposure to the young scientists writing the meeting reports.
- To spark new interdisciplinary dialogue and partnerships.
Funding for Chen Science Writers covers entrance fees and travel to and from the meeting. Candidates apply through an open call that conference or meeting organizers post and disseminate. The Fellowship recipient, who is selected by the Committee, will receive practical guidance, advice and mentorship from conference committee members.
