Request a Grant Writer

Award of $3,000 to a USA, Canada, or International writer to recognize their contribution to public understanding and awareness of advances in medical science. Eligible writers must have published or broadcast an original body of work within the past five years. Work appearing in digital media is eligible.

The Victor Cohn Prize for Excellence in Medical Science Reporting, given annually, honors a writer for a body of work published or broadcast within the last five years which, for reasons of uncommon clarity, accuracy, breadth of coverage, enterprise, originality, insight and narrative power has made a profound and lasting contribution to public awareness and understanding of critical advances in medical science and their impact on human health and well being. 

The prize is presented at a joint awards ceremony held in conjunction with ScienceWriters, a conference that combines CASW's New Horizons in Science briefings and the National Association of Science Writers Annual Workshops. Awardee travel expenses to the award ceremony are covered.
