Career Development: Fellowships, Internships, Training & Grants

The National Science-Health-Environment Reporting Fellowships

A development program for early-career journalists

The National Science-Health-Environment Reporting Fellowships program represents a unique collaboration of three leading journalism groups interested in enhancing the future of specialty journalism.

AHCJ has joined forces with the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing and the Society of Environmental Journalists to create this fellowship aimed at early-career journalists interested in careers reporting on science, health, and environmental issues.

The yearlong program offers the selected fellows niche workshops, a reporting boot camp, customized webinars, registration to national conferences, access to unique resources, and individual professional mentors to assist with career development.

The pilot project, funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Department of Science Education and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, will provide 12 fellowships. The program is particularly aimed at staff and freelance journalists with between two and 10 years of professional reporting experience.

Deadline to apply: May 17 at 6 p.m. ET, 5 p.m. CT, 3 p.m. PT
