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

Thanks to the Rhode Island Foundation's generous support, AHCJ will be able to provide professional journalists with some support to attend the conference.

Fellowships are open to full-time Rhode Island 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.

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.

Deadline for application is Feb. 28, 2022, at noon CT.

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