ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP
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.
