Thank you for applying for a scholarship to DCSWA's Professional Development Day. This scholarship application is open to any DCSWA member who is a student, early-career journalist, or other science writer for whom paying for Professional Development Day would be a hardship.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, but the deadline to apply is Friday, March 23, 2018.
