DEADLINE: USC Annenberg California Health Equity Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
December 10, 2023

The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism's California Health Equity Fellowship is designed to support reporters in the Golden State as they pursue ambitious, enterprising projects on overlooked health and health equity issues. You decide what stories need to be told in your community to improve health outcomes and we work to support you.

We embrace a broad view of health, which  doesn’t just happen at doctor’s offices and hospitals. Health is shaped by our environment — our schools, our neighborhoods and our communities. We strive to admit Fellows whose work reflects that.

When: Mar 11-14, 2024
Deadline: Dec 10, 2023

Fellows receive:

  • A $2,000-$10,000 grant to help with reporting costs
  • A week of in-person intensive training
  • Five months of professional mentorship

Fellows also are eligible to apply for five months of professional mentorship in engaged journalism and $1,000-$2,000 to support those creative efforts.

Open to California-based professional journalists (including freelancers and national correspondents with California-focused projects). We have accepted reporters in the past across all levels, from the smallest rural newspapers to national outlets.

We give preference to:

  • Applicants who have a minimum of three years of professional journalism experience
  • Reporters pursuing collaborative projects between mainstream and ethnic news outlets
