DEADLINE: Nova Institute for Health’s Media Fellowship

Event Date: 
May 28, 2024

The Nova Institute for Health’s Media Fellowship program aims to increase public understanding of the complex, intertwined connections between the health of people, places, and the planet. The Media Fellowship supports print, broadcast, and digital journalists who wish to immerse themselves in the health field and complete media projects for publication/dissemination that explore the many factors that promote well-being, prevent disease, contribute to healing, and increase an individual’s ability to flourish and live a fulfilling life.

Ideal applicants are full-time journalists with established records of publication or broadcast in local, regional, or national markets or among targeted audiences/constituencies and have relevant full-time experience. Proposals may cover international issues and involve international travel, but in 2024 we are accepting applications from U.S.-based journalists only.

Media Fellowships are one year in duration and full-time, allowing recipients to undertake their projects in a comprehensive and creative manner. The 2024 Media Fellowship award is $100,000 over 12 months, with up to an additional $7,500 reimbursed for travel expenses per Nova’s travel policies. The award is intended to support a Fellow’s living expenses, project-related expenses, conference fees, health insurance, etc. We will separately cover costs associated with attending Nova Institute-organized meetings, workshops, or events.

The Nova Institute welcomes projects that recognize and/or examine the political, historical, and social dynamics that have led to health inequities experienced by the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) community and people who are medically underserved such as refugee, migrant, and immigrant populations; people with disabilities; etc.

Media Fellows have editorial control over their projects and conduct their work independently.

Proposals are due May 28, 2024, and the fellowship term begins September 16 (flexible).
