The USC Center for Health Journalism Impact Fund this year will award four to eight reporting grants of up to $10,000 each to support health projects put forward by individual reporters, intra-newsroom teams and multiple newsroom collaboratives.
Grantees also receive six months of mentoring: guidance on everything from story development to relevant sources to new modes of storytelling.
The fund invites proposals that illuminate our national debate on healthcare policy and changes to the social safety net. The fund also will support journalism on how community conditions can shape lives and community health.
The application deadline is Feb. 15. Get details and ask questions.
