National Science-Health-Environment Reporting Fellowships 2024 

The National Science-Health-Environment Reporting Fellowships 2024 present a collaborative development opportunity for early-career journalists, offered jointly by the Association of Health Care Journalists, the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing, and the Society of Environmental Journalists.

The fellowships are designed to support early-career journalists who are pursuing — or have a strong interest in pursuing — careers in science, health or environmental reporting (or all three). Curriculum will include basic science, interpreting medical studies, analyzing data, explaining evidence-based decisions, understanding climate science and more. The program aspires to provide essential on-the-job training that might otherwise take years to accumulate.

Over the course of a year, selected fellows will: 

  • Participate in workshops and other events held at the annual Environmental Journalism (April 3-7, 2024), Health Journalism (June 7-10, 2024) and ScienceWriters (early November 2024) conferences.
  • Learn from custom webinars scheduled throughout the year for additional opportunities to gain skills, connections and resources to inform their reporting.
  • Be matched with a professional mentor.
  • Receive prepaid memberships in the National Association of Science Writers, SEJ and AHCJ.
  • Participate in peer-to-peer networking platforms.
  • Receive project support stipends if they are an independent journalist.

  • Two years’ membership (new or extended) in AHCJ, SEJ and NASW, assuming membership qualifications are met;
  • Registration to any virtual events held during the program year by AHCJ, SEJ or CASW;
  • Mentoring opportunities with a senior journalist in a topic area of choice;
  • Private online site for fellows to refer to training materials, share reporting efforts and network with one another;

Eligibility for National Reporting Fellowships 2024 

  • Candidates should be early-career, U.S.-based working journalists — either staff or freelance — with at least two years of professional experience.
  • Fellows will be expected to attend a handful of training events during the program year. Program leaders will decide whether events will take place in person or virtually based on the latest public health considerations, with fellows’ safety always top of mind.
  • Each employer (or, for a freelancer, a news outlet that is a regular client) will be asked to provide a letter of recommendation for the applicant. Employers are also asked to pledge their support for the fellows’ participation in all training events.
  • Board members and staffers of the partner organizations are not eligible to apply.
  • CASW, AHCJ, and SEJ are fully committed to diversity and inclusion in their memberships, training programs, and the larger journalism field. We welcome applicants who support that commitment.

  • A current resume or CV.
  • A letter of recommendation from your current employer that addresses the benefits of the fellowship to you and the news organization’s audience as well as the employer’s commitment to support your full participation in the fellowship.
