AHCJ-New York Health Journalism Fellowships

AHCJ, with the support of the Health Foundation for Western & Central New York and the New York State Health Foundation, provides financial assistance to a limited number of journalists who wish to attend AHCJ's annual conference.

Fellowships are open to full-time New York print, broadcast and online journalists and part-timers or freelancers who derive the majority of their income from journalism.

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.

Fellowships include:

  • 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.

To improve your chance of being selected, apply early. Fellowship selections will be announced the week after the deadline.

Submit a New York Health Journalism Fellowship Application online.

The deadline is March 4 at noon CT.
