AHCJ-Rural Health Journalism Fellowships
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.
- 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.
