Health fellowships and grants

The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism invites applications from California journalists for its all-expenses-paid California Fellowship next March.

Fellows will learn about how race, ethnicity, education level and socioeconomic status influence prospects for health.

The fellowship is March 17-20, 2019, in Los Angeles. It comes with a $1,000 reporting grant to help with the costs of producing a substantive explanatory or investigative project on a health, welfare or well-being issue important to your community, as well as six months of mentoring by a senior journalist.
