The Journal of Cardiac Failure (JCF), in partnership with the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC), conducts an annual writing fellowship program. Effective writers, like skilled researchers, are not born but develop their skills over time. ABC/JCF work together to help researchers develop their writing skills in order to support their development in writing papers for academic journals.
The 2024 pilot Cohort consisted of 2 Mentees and 2 Mentors. Cohort size may change from year to year.
The program is seven months in length and consists of several meetings, both as a group and one on one (i.e., mentor – mentee), as well as hands-on experience writing a State-of-the-Art Review paper, with guidance and feedback from mentors. ABC/JCF Leadership also participates in some of the group meetings to discuss the process of writing an academic paper and to answer general questions.
Those who successfully fulfill the program receive a certificate of completion from ABC/JCF.
The deadline to apply for the 2024 ABC-JCF Writing Fellowship is now past and ABC and JCF are no longer accepting applications for this cohort group. Information on application deadlines for the 2025 cohort will be available Summer 2024.
