The USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism announced Monday it will bring 20 journalists to USC in March for an all- expenses-paid fellowship on health.

Candidates selected for the fellowship will spend five days learning how race, ethnicity, education level and socioeconomic status influence health, a statement said.

Participants will  receive a $1,000 reporting grant designed to help with the costs of producing a project on a health issue important to communities.

The fellowship is open to print, broadcast and online journalists from California, or journalists who contribute to California-based outlets, or to national outlets “with a California footprint.”

For information on how to apply, visit CenterforHealthJournalism.org or email Martha Shirk at CAHealth@usc.edu. The application deadline is Dec. 15.
