Need financial assistance to attend Health Journalism 2008, the national conference of the Association of Health Care Journalists?

Thanks to the Missouri Foundation for Health's generous support, AHCJ will be able to grant a number of professional fellowships and student fellowships for the March 27-30 conference in Washington, D.C.

Fellowship are still available as of Feb. 14. Apply today! 

Fellowships are open to full-time Missouri print, broadcast and online journalists and part-timers or freelancers who derive the majority of their income from journalism. The student fellowships are open to full-time college or university students studying journalism or mass communication in Missouri.

Fellowships include:

  • all conference registration fees
  • a year's membership in the AHCJ (new or extended)
  • up to four nights in the conference hotel
  • up to $300 in travel costs

In an effort to help journalists in all size markets across the state, at least half of the fellowships will be awarded to journalists working outside the St. Louis and Kansas City metro areas.
