Scholarship for Journalists

As the overall goal is to drive change, by increasing awareness of solutions and dilemmas, it is important for the Summit to reach out to society outside the group of participants. Connecting with the media, and giving them a possibility to attend the summit, is thus important.

Uppsala Health Summit sets aside a limited budget to invite up to four journalists who otherwise wouldn’t have the possibility to attend the summit.

The offer

Uppsala Health Summit can cover costs for travel and accommodation for up to four journalists, enabling them to participate at Uppsala Health Summit 2022 on the theme Healthy Lives from Sustainable Food Systems. The grantees guarantee that they will attend the meeting but there are no obligations to cover the summit as such.

At the Summit, the journalists will be able to connect with speakers and delegates from different sectors in different parts of the world.

Are you a journalist with a strong interest in health and food policy issues, notably in food systems' impact on public health? Have you covered these or similar topics previously in your work but want a chance to learn more, gain insights into the related policy landscape, to connect with academic experts, policymakers, opinion builders and practitioners?

Take this opportunity to deepen your insights and broaden your networks in health and food policy!
