Need financial assistance to attend Health Journalism 2011, 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 Philadelphia.

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.

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 Feb. 23.
