Journalism fellowships available for Baltimore workshop on confronting the opioid epidemic

Fellowships are available for journalism training on confronting the opioid epidemic at the annual American Society of Addictive Medicine conference in Baltimore. The journalism training will take place from April 12-14 and the conference from April 15-17. As part of the training, journalists will cover the conference, with full access to presenters and abstracts. The all-expenses paid fellowships cover airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs, most meals and conference registration.

Fellowship applicants are required to submit two work samples from the last year, a resume or complete LinkedIn profile and a letter of support from an editor or supervisor (freelance writers can use a letter from someone who has edited or published their work). Applicants will also be asked why they are interested in the program and how the program will benefit their audience. They will be asked for a brief narrative autobiography. The application deadline is Feb. 16. To apply for the fellowship, click here. For more information on the conference, click here.
