Taylor/Blakeslee University Fellowships

The Council for the Advancement of Science Writing offers fellowships of $5,000 to both professional journalists and students of outstanding ability who have been accepted for enrollment in graduate-level programs in science writing. Journalists with at least two years of mass media experience will receive preferential treatment in the selection process. Students must have undergraduate degrees in science or journalism and must convince the CASW selection committee of their ability to pursue a career in writing science for the general public. Fellows may attend school either full-time or part-time. Applicants should plan to attend a U.S. institution and should be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Science writing is here defined as writing about science, medicine, health, technology, and the environment for the general public via the mass media. Fellowships are not available to those pursuing or intending to pursue careers in public relations, public information, or technical writing. The fellowships are underwritten by a grant from the Brinson Foundation, a Chicago-based philanthropic organization devoted to supporting educational, public health and scientific research programs, and by funds derived from a special bequest to CASW from the American Tentative Society, which, for three decades, played an important role in promoting public understanding of science and the scientific process. The fellowships honor the late Rennie Taylor, a science writer for Associated Press, whose estate provided funds for the establishment of ATS, and Alton Blakeslee, former science editor of Associated Press, who served as its longtime president.

Digital Third Coast’s Digital Marketing Scholarship

Twenty years ago, if you suddenly wanted to know what the difference was between gelato and ice cream, you’d have to find an encyclopedia, a dictionary, or a wizened old Italian grandmother to fill you in. Now, we live in a world where silly sounds like Google, Yahoo and Bing are verbs, and an entirely new industry has been created to help people capitalize on the power of digital marketing. With all the changes search engine marketing (SEM) has seen in the past ten years, we can’t know for sure what it will look like in the next five or ten years. Will content marketing continue to be a focus in digital marketing? How will data from PPC and SEO campaigns inform each other’s strategy? Will local SEO become more important as people become more mobile, or will our own hometown Chicago SEO give way to a more global search engine strategy? Frankly, it’s anyone’s guess- and that’s where you come in. In a 500+ word essay, share how you think digital marketing will develop in the next five to ten years, and what you think the industry will be like when you’re out of school and working in the marketing industry. You may focus on one how one aspect of digital marketing will change, or you can address how each branch of digital marketing will grow to interact with the others. The winning essay writer will receive $500 in scholarship funds to help you achieve your goal of working in SEO, PPC, or content marketing. The scholarship is open to planning to study the fields of marketing, advertising, and/or public relations. To enter, please send your completed essay to DTCscholarship@gmail.com, along with your name, age, grade, location, college/university, and your intended major in college. You MUST include “DTC scholarship” in the subject line of the email. - See more at: http://www.digitalthirdcoast.net/blog/dtc-digital-marketing-scholarship#sthash.3J2nnXvO.dpuf
