Varsha Ramakrishnan, a Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Center Global Health Reporting Fellow, interviews a source.

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 Bloomberg School of Public Health degree student is eligible to apply (including May 2023 graduates), and no prior reporting experience is required. 

Application deadline extended to Monday, March 20, 2023 at 11:59 pm.

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

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

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

The Pulitzer Center and the Bloomberg School works with the fellow(s) to place their work in media outlets.
