Health Journalism 2013: AHCJ-Rural Health Journalism Fellowships

Need financial assistance to attend Health Journalism 2013, the national conference of the Association of Health Care Journalists?

Thanks to the Leona M. & Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust's generous support, AHCJ will be able to grant a number of professional fellowships for the conference in Boston.

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 will be assigned a story to write about one of the conference sessions to be posted during the conference.

Fellowships include:

  • all conference registration fees
  • a year's membership in AHCJ (new or extended)
  • up to four nights in the conference hotel (Wed.-Sat.)
  • travel assistance will vary

The application deadline was Wednesday, Jan. 23.

Note: Fellowships only include travel within the United States.
