AHCJ-Rural Health Journalism Fellowships

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

Need financial assistance to attend the annual conference of the Association of Health Care Journalists?

With support from our funders, this fellowship is intended for reporters and editors working in rural towns and counties or who work for outlets serving a predominately rural population. (Generally, this includes counties with populations below 100,000.) 

To assist as many journalists as possible, travel assistance will vary based on location.

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.
