The United Nations Foundation, a public charity, was created in 1998 with entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner’s historic $1 billion gift to support UN causes and activities. The UN Foundation builds and implements public/private partnerships to address the world’s most pressing problems, and works to broaden support for the UN through advocacy and public outreach. Through campaigns and partnerships, the organization connects people, ideas, and resources to help the UN solve global problems. The campaigns reduce child mortality, empower women and girls, create a new energy future, secure peace and human rights, and promote technology innovation to improve health outcomes. These solutions are helping the UN advance the eight global targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

This September, attention will again focus on the United Nations as world leaders gather in New York for an unprecedented summit to address some of the world’s greatest challenges. In an effort to provide the latest information to U.S. journalists on these pressing global issues and offer unparalleled access to renowned policymakers and experts, the UN Foundation will host a special fellowship for U.S.-based journalists during the week of the UN General Assembly.


This four-day fellowship, from September 18-21, will have a special focus on global health issues and will provide fellows with unequaled access to country leaders, celebrities, UN experts, and NGO representatives to report on the events and announcements being made during UN Week. The fellowship will also include access to the 2011 Social Good Summit.

With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this fellowship is designed to foster participants’ understanding of the issues surrounding international development and global health, and will provide the exclusive opportunity for fellows to participate in on- and off-the-record issue briefings, roundtables, and conversations with issue experts and high-level officials.

This fellowship is intended for U.S.-based reporters who do not have regular access to key UN experts, but are interested in global health, international development, and the United Nations. Special consideration will be given to journalists whose portfolios include health.

The Fellowship Program is not a degree or journalism training program.


  • Applicants must be fluent in reading, writing and speaking English.
  • Preference will be given to US-based journalists who cover health or international issues.
  • Fellows are required to participate for the entire duration of the four-day program.
  • Travel expenses, hotel accommodation, and a majority of the meals will be covered through this fellowship.
  • All application materials must be received on or before August 5, 2011.
