The Association of Health Care Journalists is offering fellowships to attend its May 2-5 conference in Baltimore, including one for reporters and editors working in rural towns and counties or who work for outlets serving a predominantly rural population. “Generally, this includes counties with populations below 100,000,” AHCJ says.
March 1 is the deadline to apply. The fellowship covers the conference registration fee, a year’s membership in AHCJ (new or extended), up to four nights in the conference hotel (Wed.-Sat.) if you live you live more than 50 miles away; and up to $400 for travel assistance (outside of 50-mile radius from the host hotel) and up to $100 (inside a 50-mile radius).
