CASW’s first Connector Chat generates fellowship resources

Resources from CASW’s first Connector Chat, which offered tips for finding and securing science journalism fellowships, are now available online. 

Connector is CASW’s library of resources for science journalism and communication. For the first live Connector Chat Nov. 8, Connector managing editor Kate Travis led a conversation with Deborah Blum, director of the Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT and a CASW board member; Heatmap founding staff writer Neel Dhanesha; and freelance journalist Jyoti Madhusoodanan. More than 50 people joined the live conversation. 

Participants took shared notes throughout the event, generating a tipsheet with links to fellowships — sorted by career stage and interest area — suggestions for the application process, and other useful resources. The tipsheet is available on the Connector website, along with a video of the full event. 

Connector was developed with support from Schmidt Futures and the Rita Allen Foundation. For information on upcoming events, including future Connector Chats, visit Connector’s Events page.
