The World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ) is inviting science journalists from all over the world to provide them with scholarships to attend the Kavli Prize.
The scientific program will include the laureates’ lectures as well as popular science lectures by some of the world’s leading science communicators.
The winning journalists will be invited to the Award Ceremony followed by a Banquet, The Kavli Prize Laureate Lectures and the Kavli Prize Symposia. There might also be Kavli Prize Events outside Oslo. The journalists will have the opportunity to interview the laureates. The jury, a sub-committee of the WFSJ-Board, will select the five journalists on the basis of submitted work.
The Kavli Prize recognizes scientists for their seminal advances in three research areas:
- Astrophysics, the origin, structure and composition of the cosmos.
- Nanoscience, science at the atomic scale.
- Neuroscience, science of the human brain.
- The Prize consists of USD 1,000,000 in each of the scientific fields.
- In addition to the prize money the laureates receive a scroll and a gold medal.
- The WFSJ will manage the travel arrangements of the participants.
- The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters will cover accommodation for the journalists and provide necessary support documents for their visa application if applicable.
- If any of the journalists want to attend Kavli Prize Events outside Oslo, the scholarship should cover the travel costs, while the Academy will cover accommodation.
The competition will be open to science journalists from all over the world.
