Health Reporting Fellowship
All-Expenses-Paid Mini Fellowship, $2,000-$10,000 Reporting Grants At USC Annenberg
When: July 22-26, 2012
Where: Los Angeles
Deadline to Apply: April 16, 2012

USC Annenberg’s California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships program is offering three different reporting grants this year to underwrite investigative or explanatory journalism projects on substantive health issues. The grants all include participation in The National Health Journalism Fellowships , which allow journalists to step away from their daily routines to spend five days in Los Angeles exploring topics related to “Health and Place,” or how neighborhood and work environments impact health and life expectancy. This intensive mini fellowship will help you understand how community health, health policy, and the nation’s growing ethnic diversity intersect. You’ll come away from the experience with a multitude of story ideas and sources, new insights into what community influences contribute to personal health, and funds to pursue an important health-related reporting project.

Based at USC’s Annenberg School of Journalism, the National Fellowship is open to print, broadcast, and online journalists from around the country. National Fellows receive meals, travel, and lodging, plus a $2,000 stipend upon publication or broadcast of a major fellowship project on almost any domestic health issue.

The Hunt Fund (grants of $2,500 to $10,000) will support projects that examine the effects of a specific factor or confluence of factors on a community’s health, such as poverty, health disparities, pollution, violence, land use, urban development, access to health care, and access to healthy food. And our new Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health Fund (California journalists only) will provide grants of $2,000-$5,000 to underwrite projects focused on children’s health issues.

Competition for all the grants is open to both newsroom staffers and freelancers who contribute to print, broadcast, and online news outlets. The stipends and grants can be used to defray reporting and publishing-related costs such as travel, website development, database acquisition and analysis, environmental testing, translation services, and a journalist’s otherwise uncompensated time.

Applicants must join ReportingonHealth.org, a Web 2.0 community for health journalism and the official website for the Fellowships. To encourage collaboration between mainstream and ethnic media, preference will be given to applicants who propose a joint project for use by both media outlets.

For more information, visit ReportingonHealth.org or e- mail Martha Shirk at Cahealth@usc.edu. (To improve your prospects for success, we recommend that you discuss your project idea with us in advance.)

2012-2013 Post-graduate Multimedia Fellow – application deadline is April 1
Graduates with bachelor’s or master’s degrees are invited to apply for this yearlong fellowship. The fellowship comes with free housing in a furnished apartment and a $21,000 stipend. The fellowship lasts for a year, beginning in late summer 2012. The fellow maintains our website, so applicants must have excellent skills in html and CMS. The fellow teaches multimedia skills to undergraduate interns, coordinates group projects and produces his or her own stories.
