Subject: July 22 Deadline Coming Up - Grants of up to $10,000 for Health Journalism

Just two weeks until the application deadline...
New Grants of up to $10,000 
For Reporting on Community Health 
Application Deadline: July 22, 2009

The deadline is approaching for applications to the Dennis A. Hunt Fund for Health Journalism, which will offer grants of between $2,500 and $10,000 this year to as many as 10 print, broadcast and new media journalists.


The grants support ambitious investigative or explanatory journalism projects on community health policy. Joint projects between mainstream and ethnic/community media are encouraged.


The deadline to apply for this year's grants is July 22. For more information and an application, visit, contact Martha Shirk at or call (213) 437-4439.


Grants will be offered again in 2010 and 2011.


The Hunt Fund will support projects that examine the effects on a community's health of factors such as poverty, health disparities, pollution, violence, land use, urban development, access to health resources and access to healthy food. The fund honors the legacy of Dennis A. Hunt, a visionary communications leader at The California Endowment.


The fund is administered by the USC Annenberg/California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships, which was co-founded by Hunt. The fund is financed by memorial contributions from Hunt's friends and colleagues.Grantees will be selected by an advisory board, which includes professionals working in journalism, public policy and communications.


Grants, which are open to both newsroom staffers and freelancers, can defray reporting and publishing-related costs such as travel, Web development, database acquisition, translation services, and a journalist's otherwise uncompensated time. Eighty percent of the amount of each grant will be paid at the outset of the project, with the remaining 20 percent to be paid upon publication or broadcast. Stories must be published or broadcast within one year of grant awards.


Grant recipients also are automatically awarded acceptance in the National Fellowships of The California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships. Applicants are expected to join, a new Web 2.0 community for health journalism and the official Web site for the Fellowships.
