Deadline: Rolling deadline
The HIV/AIDS and the Media Project offers two annual 4-6 month
fellowships to working journalists to undertake longer term and
in-depth research and writing on HIV/AIDS outside of the newsroom. The
writing that results from these fellowships will be published in a wide
range of media and peer-reviewed journals.
The fellowships are shaped around identifying, researching and filling
gaps in reporting on HIV/AIDS. Previous and current fellowships have
focused on media coverage and audience reception of HIV/AIDS news
texts, the role of stigma and gender in prevention of mother-to-child
transmission of HIV (PMTCT) and its media coverage, the strengths and
vulnerabilities of HIV-positive children and the role of traditional
health practitioners in the mainstream treatment of their patients.
