Two All-Expenses-Paid Opportunities with Reporting Stipends For Journalists

When: July 11-16, 2010
Where: Los Angeles
Deadline to Apply May 5, 2010 and May 12, 2010

Step away from your daily routine to spend a week in Los Angeles exploring the intersection between community health, health policy and the nation’s growing ethnic diversity, as well as the role that factors such as race, ethnicity, pollution, violence, and transportation and land-use policy play in prospects for good health. You’ll come away from the experience with a multitude of story ideas and sources, plus a thorough grounding in the principles and practice of good health journalism.

Based at USC’s Annenberg School of Journalism, The National Health Journalism Fellowship (deadline: May 12) and the Dennis A. Hunt Fund for Health Journalism (deadine: May 5) are open to print, broadcast and online journalists from around the country. We’re looking for journalists who have a passion for health stories, not just those on the health beat. National fellows receive meals, travel, and lodging plus a $2,000 stipend upon publication or broadcast of a major fellowship project.

Dennis Hunt Fund grantees attend the national fellowship and receive reporting stipends of $2,500 to $10,000. 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.
