Career Development: Fellowships, Internships, Training & Grants

AHCJ-Healthier Beat Fellowships

Funding for this program is still pending and may impact the number of fellowships we will award.

AHCJ, with support from our funders, provides financial assistance to journalists who cover beats other than health who wish to attend AHCJ's annual conference.

Fellowships are open to full-time journalists who wish to attend AHCJ's annual conference because they are being asked to cover health angles on their nonhealth beats.

These fellowships are aimed at daily beat reporters whose chief assignment is covering environment, business, education or government and are not members of AHCJ. As more newsroom reporters discover they need to cover health angles on non-health beats, the value of understanding health concepts becomes clear.

If selected for a fellowship, you may be asked to write an AHCJ website blog post, take pictures or shoot video of a conference session.

Fellowship includes:

  • conference registration fee

  • one year's membership in AHCJ (new or extended)

  • up to four nights in conference hotel (Wed.-Sat.)

  • up to $400 for travel assistance within the continental United States. This may not cover ALL travel costs.

Submit a Health Journalism Fellowship Application online.

The deadline is noon CT, Feb. 24.
