Step away from your daily routine to spend a week in Los Angeles exploring 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 with a multitude of story ideas and sources, new insights into what shapes health, and funds to produce a substantive journalistic project.
Based at USC’s Annenberg School of Journalism, The National Health Journalism Fellowship and the Dennis A. Hunt Fund for Health are open to print, broadcast, and online journalists from around the country. They are looking for journalists with 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.
Applications from ethnic media journalists are strongly encouraged, as are applications proposing collaborative projects between mainstream and ethnic news outlets.

Competition for the National Fellowship and the Dennis A. Hunt Fund Grants is open to both newsroom staffers and freelancers. The stipends and grants can be used to defray reporting and publishing-related costs such as travel, website development, database acquisition and analysis, translation services, and a journalist’s otherwise uncompensated time. 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.
