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.

Students will be asked to share a room with another student fellow.

    Up to $400 for travel assistance (outside of 50-mile radius from host hotel) and up to $100 (inside of 50-mile radius from host hotel).

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