NASW Peggy Girshman Idea Grant 2023 Application Update

NASW Peggy Girshman Idea Grant

The National Association of Science Writers (NASW) invites proposals from individuals or groups for grants to support projects and programmes that will help science writers in their professional lives and benefit the field of science writing.

Projects must be aligned with NASW’s mission, and should be accessible to U.S.-based science writers. The Grants Committee encourages creative thinking, and so, as in past years, the guidelines for Idea Grant proposals are consciously broad. However, the committee prioritizes applications that propose novel projects, events, or resources that the NASW grants programme has not supported in the past.


  • Grants of up to $15,000 are available.


  • Applicants need not be NASW members, and the committee welcomes proposals from all PIOs, journalists, freelance writers, and other interested parties.
  • Applicants located outside of the United States may apply, but all proposals must demonstrate a clear benefit to U.S.-based science writers.
  • NASW is committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. They are especially interested in projects led by and/or that serve underrepresented audiences and groups.


Successful past applications have demonstrated how funded work will be sustained beyond the award period. Applicants are encouraged to learn more about the programme, review past awards, and read selected proposals from past projects. Before submitting a proposal, also review the list of Do’s and Don’ts.

Submit your proposal by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, February 1, 2023.
