Starting Your Local Chapter

CSCA members will recall our earlier announcement of our Local Chapters Project, funded by a grant from the Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc.

By now many of you have heard about our new Local Chapters Project, funded by a grant from Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc. With this funding, we are able to start at least six additional chapters in locations across Canada!

This will help you to fund local events and join the conversation that is taking place in existing active local chapters like Hamilton and Vancouver.Local chapters will allow the CSCA to develop strong and colourful local identities that have an impact in their own communities.

What do I need to start a local chapter?

  • Three members of the CSCA. (One of the three can be a student member.)
  • One member to be the contact person (see expectations here along with the resources CSCA will provide)
  • Follow this step-by-step guide!

Communicating Harmonies Between Science & Religion Using Narrative Nonfiction—Through an Innovative, Collaborative Thinking and Writing Program

This is a call for applicants to our flagship program–12, two-year, non-residential narrative writing Fellowships. Fellows will receive travel to 3 all-expense-paid writing workshops around the nation, dedicated mentors and editorial support, exposure of their work at 5 events at science museums in the US and Canada, publishing opportunities, and a $10,000 honorarium.
Recipients of the Think Write Publish Fellowship will develop and write a true story or a series of true stories exploring the harmonies between science and religion. The Fellowship program will not only give Fellows the time and opportunity to craft a publishable story, but will provide them with essential professional guidance and a community of Fellow writers and influential members of the publishing world.
The deadline for applications is May 15, 2016.
The program is based at Arizona State University–Think Write Publish–focused on exploring the intersections between science and religion.
