USC Center for Health Journalism National Fellowship

Our country has no shortage of unaddressed health and social welfare issues facing America’s children, youth and families. Which will your reporting illuminate?

USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism can support you on your dream project. Our call for applications for the 2022 National Fellowship is now open.

Our National Fellowship equips journalists pursuing ambitious stories focused on health equity and child, youth and family well-being with:

- A reporting grant ranging between $2,000 and $10,000
- One week of intensive training and workshops
- Five months of professional mentorship from a veteran journalist

You don’t need to be a health journalist to be considered. Instead, many of our best Fellows wanted to explore how to cover their beats through a health or social welfare equity lens. Click through to our website to learn more!

SPJ Northeast High School Journalism Institute

The Society of Professional Journalists chapter leaders in the Northeast are launching a high school weekend journalism workshop this summer.

The SPJ Northeast High School Journalism Institute will be held at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island, on July 15-17. Applications are being accepted now for 16 spots.

Students will be trained by professional journalists and journalism professors in reporting, newswriting, video and audio journalism, and multimedia production. Because Roger Williams is a coastal university, students will cover stories related to the area’s environment, economy and infrastructure. Students will work in teams to generate news stories, photos, videos and audio. This work will be published on a website created for the program.

Rising high school juniors and rising seniors from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont and the eastern half of Pennsylvania are eligible. Journalism experience is preferred but not required.

Students with limited means will be eligible for tuition waivers and free housing, meals and transportation assistance.

“Collaborating with SPJ leaders who care deeply about nurturing the next generation of great storytellers will be a great experience for the students,” said Chris R. Vaccaro, SPJ Northeast Coordinator. “We are looking forward to guiding these students on their journey and are grateful for the partnership with Roger Williams University.”

The cost is $150 per student, which includes housing and meals.

All accepted candidates will be notified by Thursday, April 14.

Participants can expect:

Training from professional journalists and professors
Real-time reporting and hands-on editing
Networking and social experiences with peers and pros
Studying the values and principles of the Society of Professional Journalists
