About the Grantee:

For a century, Science News has been a trusted source of concise and comprehensive science journalism. Today, Science News is one of the few newsrooms left with a team of beat science reporters, many of them with Ph.D.s, dedicated to identifying and reporting on the latest and most important scientific discoveries across all fields of science. Science News is an independent nonprofit newsroom and have been since its founding in 1921 by newspaper magnate E.W. Scripps and biologist William E. Ritter. They believed that accurate coverage of science was essential to have an informed public and to support democratic institutions.
