Applications now open for the 2019 AMWA Early-Career Award
This is the chance for aspiring medical writers to enter the industry with a splash. The Award is designed to assist in the transition from tertiary education or other areas of employment into full-time medical writing. Applicants for the Award will be assessed on a piece of writing of approximately 1000 words and a short person biography.
The benefits of the Early-Career Award include:
- Conference registration and workshop attendance plus $1000 towards travel and accommodation
- Publicity via the conference presentation, social media and the AMWA website
- Advice and assistance from AMWA members already established in the field of medical writing
Last year’s inaugural winner of the Award, Nidhi Sodhi, found the experience to be valuable and rewarding:
“This year, as the winner of the AMWA Early Career Award I attended the conference in Melbourne. It was a fantastic event with inspiring and entertaining presentations, informative workshops, and plenty of opportunity for networking. If you’re in two minds, my advice is DO IT!!”
Applications close on March 31, 2019. Further details including the terms and conditions of entry are available here.
