Posted on Oct 19, 2021 in Specialized Topics

Journalists interested in pursuing a reporting project on health care systems in the United States can apply for a fellowship.

The Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ), with support from the Commonwealth Fund, is offering the AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance.  The yearlong program will allow journalists to pursue a significant 2022 reporting project related to the U.S. health care system, either local, regional or national.

Interested journalists should submit proposals with projects focused on health equity, which includes racial disparities within a community, gaps in public health inclusion, unstable housing, insurance access, food insecurity and violence as a health issue.  

The fellowship covers the cost of attending seminars and AHCJ conferences and a US$4,000 project allowance. In addition, each fellow will receive US$2,500 upon the successful completion of the project.

The application deadline is Nov. 8.
