Media Fellow

Posted: April 18, 2024

The Nova Institute for Health’s Media Fellowship program aims to increase public understanding of the complex, intertwined connections between the health of people, places, and the planet. The Media Fellowship supports print, broadcast, and digital journalists who wish to immerse themselves in the health field and complete media projects that explore the many factors that promote well-being, prevent disease, contribute to healing, and increase an individual’s ability to flourish and live a fulfilling life.

The program’s goals include increasing media coverage that reflects a broad vision of health; is science-based and accurately reports on pertinent ideas, questions, and debates; and embraces solutions journalism and combats mis- and dis-information. It also aims to share innovative research and ideas, and evidence-based information, to different audiences in understandable and engaging ways.    

We encourage projects that connect mental health and emotional well-being to individual, community, and planetary health; recognize and/or examine political, historical, and social dynamics that have led to health inequities; and projects that take a transdisciplinary and inter-sectoral approach. Media Fellowships are one year in duration and full-time, allowing recipients to undertake their projects in a comprehensive and creative manner. Media Fellows receive an award of $100,000 with additional travel reimbursement. Proposals are due May 28, 2024, and projects begin in Fall 2024.
