Individual Prizes and Fellowships

Science Journalism Student Award

The Science Journalism Student Award enables students pursuing a science or medical journalism degree to attend the SfN annual meeting. Two awards are granted each year.

Recipients get complimentary meeting registration, four nights’ lodging, and $750 to help defray the expenses of attending the meeting. Additionally, recipients are assigned a mentor who is an experienced professional journalist covering the annual meeting. SfN makes every effort to pair awardees with a mentor based on mutual interests in print or broadcast journalism. SfN media staff are also available to advise award recipients how to navigate and report on the meeting.
