Graduate & Undergraduate Students: Apply to the 2018 NASW Mentoring Program at AAAS

Are you a graduate or undergraduate student looking for guidance on how to establish a career in science writing? Are you curious about how senior science writers do their jobs? Find out through the NASW Mentoring Program, which will pair students with established science writers during the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting, Feb. 15-19 in Austin, Texas.

To apply, complete the form below. The application deadline is Monday, Jan. 8, 2018.

Successful applicants must attend an orientation, 4-5 pm Friday, Feb. 16. The mentoring program does not provide funding for travel to AAAS.

The program is limited by the number of mentors who volunteer. Participants are selected by the co-chairs of the NASW Education Committee, and spots generally are assigned in the order in which applications are received.

ALL APPLICANTS MUST JOIN NASW BY FEB. 1 to be eligible to participate. Membership status will be checked. Please go to https://www.nasw.org/join to apply for student membership. Contact the NASW Education Committee at education@nasw.org if you have questions about membership.

Mentors and mentees will decide together how to spend their time. Some mentors may ask students to shadow them for a day or half-day, showing them how they select talks and press conferences for coverage. Others may choose to meet over lunch or breakfast and be available for questions throughout the meeting.

To gain access to press-only areas at the meeting, students must register separately with the AAAS Newsroom.

Thank you,
Czerne Reid & Ashley Yeager
Co-Chairs, Education Committee
National Association of Science Writers (NASW)
