DEADLINE: USC Annenberg National Health Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
May 5, 2023

The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism's annual National Fellowship helps journalists, and their newsrooms, report deeply and authoritatively on the health, welfare and well-being of children, youth, families and communities.

There are no shortage of health issues in America and we want to help you illuminate them.

The all-expenses-paid National Fellowship, to be held July 16-20, 2023, is designed for journalists who want to do groundbreaking reporting on health disparities and on vulnerable children, youth and families and the community conditions and social forces that contribute to their health, welfare and well-being. Each Fellow spends the next five months working on a substantive reporting project, assisted with a reporting grant of $2,000-$10,000 and mentoring by a veteran journalist. Fellows are also eligible and encouraged to apply for engagement grants that support new community-journalism partnerships.

The deadline to apply is May 5.

Who can apply?

  • U.S.-based professional journalists
  • Reporters who hold full-time staff positions in newsrooms that are both large and small
  • Freelancers are welcome to apply, but must have a confirmed assignment and should earn the majority of their income from journalism.
  • Applicants who have a minimum of three years of professional journalism experience.

We believe that newsrooms should reflect the diversity of the communities they serve and strongly encourage applications from ethnic media. We give priority to applications from journalists who collaborate from mainstream and ethnic media.
