DEADLINE: USC Annenberg Impact Fund for Reporting on Health Equity and Health Systems

Event Date: 
July 24, 2023

USC Annenberg’s Center for Health Journalism offers the Impact Fund for Reporting on Health Equity and Health Systems to support ambitious investigative or explanatory projects on systemic racism in public health, health care policy and the practice of medicine, including inequity in treatment, access to care, patient experience and health outcomes for Black people, Indigenous people and other people of color.

The program begins in mid-September 2023 and includes monthly meetings, webinars and individualized mentoring over five months.

Application deadline: July 24, 2023

Grantees receive:

  • A $2,000-$10,000 grant to help with reporting costs
  • Five months of professional mentorship from a veteran journalist
  • Monthly online development and brainstorming sessions with other reporters in their class
  • Four webinars devoted to health equity in health systems

Journalists can play an important role in highlighting systemic and structural forces and how they impact individuals, families and communities. This Fund supports journalism that calls attention to chronic inequities in public health and health care systems and offers up paths for change. Reporters in this program conceive and report ambitious projects on how racial bias in health systems — whether structural or unconscious — creates health care inequities.
