DEADLINE: USC Annenberg Data Fellowship

Event Date: 
August 26, 2019

The best journalism these days wraps scrupulous data analysis in compelling narratives. The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism would like to help you with the data analysis part of the equation through our all-expenses-paid 2019 Data Fellowship, which offers an intensive training institute, grants of $2000 to $3,500 to help with reporting an ambitious project and six months of expert mentoring.

Founded in 2004, the Center for Health Journalism at USC's Annenberg School of Journalism is known nationally as the pre-eminent training program nationally for journalists on community health and children's issues.

We'll bring journalists to Los Angeles at our expense from October 23-26; provide three and a half days of intensive training in data acquisition, cleansing, analysis and visualization techniques; and then send them home to work on a substantive reporting project.

Deadline is August 26, 2019. We require applicants to have a conversation in advance of applying with one of our data trainers. Email Martha Shirk at to arrange.
