The Council of Science Editors (CSE) is a dynamic community of editorial professionals dedicated to the responsible and effective communication of science. Its mission is to serve editorial professionals in the sciences by creating a supportive network for career development, providing educational opportunities, and developing resources for identifying and implementing high-quality editorial practices.
The 2022 CSE Scholarship Program will support up to five scientific publishing, editing, and/or writing professionals with the following benefits:
  • Complimentary registration to the 2022 Annual Meeting (tentatively April 30-May 3, 2022 and will be offered in a hybrid format)
  • Complimentary Worldwide Membership for 2022
  • Complimentary registration to participate in any one 2022 Virtual Short Course
  • A mentor paired through the CSE Mentorship Program
Early career professionals are encouraged to apply, especially those who have been in the industry 0-5 years. Membership in CSE is not required to apply for the scholarship. Those who are selected will be encouraged to join and participate in a CSE Committee and/or contribute an article for Science Editor.
Additionally, qualified applicants not selected for the scholarship may be offered either a complimentary Worldwide Flex membership or 50% off a Worldwide membership. Those selected will be encouraged to join a CSE committee and/or contributing an article for Science Editor.

All applications will be reviewed by the CSE Membership Committee. Applicants who thoroughly and clearly address all questions will be scored higher than those who do not. Clarity of ideas and perceived enthusiasm will reflect positively on the candidate. Applicants with specific goals on how CSE will impact their professional growth will be scored higher than those with vague ideas.
Applications were to have been received by October 22, 2021.
Best of luck to all scholarship applicants! Should you have any questions, please reach out to CSE at [email protected]. Decisions will be announced in mid-December.

The CSE Scholarship Program was developed to support editors and publishing professionals by sponsoring their attendance at the CSE annual meeting. The scholarship program will be open again in the fall of 2021.
