Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Global Health Reporting Fellowship

pulitzer program 2021

The Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Global Health Reporting Fellowship is a unique opportunity for Bloomberg School students to do in-depth reporting on a global health issue of their choice and gain a clearer understanding of the media’s role in shaping the global health conversation.

Any Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health degree student (including May 2021 graduates) is eligible to apply. The application deadline is Monday, March 22, 2021.

The $5,000 fellowship supports training with journalists from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, D.C., and reporting, travel and living expenses. The Center will provide technical and editorial support through the planning, reporting and writing/production phases of the fellowship.

Working with the Pulitzer Center, the selected fellow will produce print and online stories, videos, photojournalism or work for other media platforms, depending on the fellow’s project.

The Pulitzer Center and the Bloomberg School will work with the fellow to place their work in media outlets.

The Global Health Reporting Fellowship supports projects that focus on public health issues of global importance that have underreported or neglected by mainstream media in the U.S.
