Science journalists eligible for Sharon Begley Award

THE Council for the Advancement of Science Reporting is accepting applications for the Sharon Begley Science Reporting Award.

The award will recognise and support reporting and writing that embodies the high standards embodied by Sharon Begley (1956–2021), a science journalist of unflinching dedication, skill, moral clarity, and commitment to mentoring.

Interested applicants must submit three to five published clips, or other work samples that illustrate their best work in science journalism.

Applicants must also submit a project proposal describing a reporting and writing project to be undertaken with the award grant.

CASR aims to consider a highly competitive and highly diverse pool of candidates, and encourages all mid-career science journalists to consider entering. Toward that end, there is no entry fee, and applications will be accepted online.

Staff and independent journalists living and working anywhere in the world are eligible if they have published in news outlets that are available to international audiences. Although the award can be won only once, there is no limit to the number of times one can enter.




    Experienced science journalists can compete for an award that grants US$20,000 to undertake a significant reporting project.

    Journalists living and working anywhere in the world are eligible if they have published in news outlets that are available to international audiences.

    The submission of application deadline is April 30, 2023.
