The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism’s 2022 National Fellowship helps journalists, and their newsrooms, report deeply and authoritatively on the health, welfare and well-being of children, youth, families and communities.
The National Fellowship annually offers five days of informative and stimulating discussions (Sunday, July 10, 2022 to Thursday, July 14, 2022), plus reporting grants of $2,000-$10,000, engagement grants for new community-journalism partnerships and five months of expert mentoring as Fellows work on ambitious explanatory or investigative projects. In all its training institutes, the Center emphasizes impact journalism, solutions journalism and community engagement approaches that help journalists to make a difference.
Participants in the 2022 National Fellowship are eligible to apply to one of several funds, each with its own specialized reporting focus.
Plus, all admitted applicants are eligible to apply for The Community Engagement Fund, which will provide supplemental grants to up to five admitted Fellows to underwrite innovative community engagement strategies by journalists and community partners.
