Help shape the future for an early career publishing professional!

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 CSE Scholarship Program has been developed to support publishing professionals by sponsoring their attendance to the CSE Annual Meeting. Up to three scholarships are being offered to attend the CSE Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, May 2-5, 2020. By attending, you will have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders about emerging trends, topics and best practices, meet colleagues working in the same field, and have the possibility of joining a committee and contributing while getting to know the organization. We encourage early-career professionals to apply for the scholarship, especially those who have been in the industry for 0-5 years.

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.

Decisions will be based on review of each application by the CSE Membership Committee. Applicants who thoroughly and clearly address all questions 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 on how attending the CSE annual meeting will impact their professional growth will be scored higher than those with vague ideas.

The application deadline was October 18, 2019.

The application must be completed on the website in English. Do not fax or mail the application form.

Best of luck to all scholarship applicants, and we look forward to seeing you May 2020 in Portland! If you have any questions, please contact  Tammy Hanna, CSE Membership Committee Chair. All applications will be reviewed and voted on by the CSE Membership Committee, with decisions being made by early December.
