Help shape the future for an early career publishing professional!

What is the CSE Scholarship Program?
The CSE Scholarship Program has been developed to support publishing professionals by sponsoring their attendance to the CSE Annual Meeting. By attending, recipients will have the opportunity to learn, meet colleagues working in the same field, and have the possibility of joining a committee and contributing while getting to know the organization. Applicants of all levels of experience are welcome, but especially encouraged are early-career professionals.

Each funded scholar will receive free full meeting registration to the Annual Meeting, excluding Short Courses and any additional offerings, and reimbursement for travel expenses (including hotel stay at the conference hotel and meals), up to $2,000.00. All applicants early in their career are welcome!

Decisions will be based on review of each application by the CSE Membership Committee. Applicants who address all points will be scored higher than those who do not. Clarity of expression and perceived enthusiasm will reflect positively on the candidate. Applicants with specific goals will be scored higher than those with vague ideas.

For questions, please contact Lindsey Buscher, CSE Membership Committee Chair. CSE Membership Committee Chair. The call for applications goes out every year in September, with recipient announcements announced in November.
