CSE Scholarship Program

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 supports scientific publishing, editing, and writing professionals with the following benefits:

    • Complimentary registration to the Annual Meeting
    • Complimentary Worldwide Membership for one year
    • Complimentary registration to participate in any one 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 for applying. Those who are selected will be encouraged to join and participate in a CSE Committee and/or contribute an article to 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 contribute an article to Science Editor.

Know of a deserving scholarship recipient? Provide them with details and encourage them to apply! Applications will be open again in fall 2022. 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.
