Nova Institute offers media fellowship

NOVA Institute for Health of People, Places and Planets is inviting applications for its 2023 media fellowship.

The media fellowship program aims to give recipients the time, space and resources to research, write and speak about issues that validate and show the importance of an expansive health framework.

The programme will provide journalists an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the complex, intertwined network of factors that affect health and well-being and the inadequacy of a health framework that focuses on disease.

Media Fellows can play an important role in translating research findings and analyses for a range of audiences, combining data with stories that inform the public and engage policymakers in order to change attitudes the organiser says.

The fellowship will run for one year in duration and full-time, allowing recipients to undertake their projects in a comprehensive and creative manner.



    The Nova Institute strongly prefers that Media Fellows take a leave of absence from any organisation where they are currently employed during the fellowship period.

    Projects begin in the fall of 2023; no later than December 1, 2023.

    Fellows will receive $105,000 which is intended to support living expenses, project-related expenses, travel, conference fees, health insurance, etc.

    The deadline for the submission of applications is July 5, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
