The AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance allow mid-career journalists to maintain their regular employment while working on a significant reporting project related to the U.S. health care system at the local, regional and/or national level over a 12-month calendar year. You’ll pursue the projects with the support of your newsrooms or arranged outlets, which commit to publish or air the work.

Guidance is provided by AHCJ mentors through customized seminars on health care systems, conference calls and email consultations. The fellowship covers the cost of attending the seminars and the annual AHCJ conference, as well as a $4,000 project allowance to defray the cost of field reporting, health data analysis and other project-related research. In addition, you will receive a $2,500 fellowship award upon the successful completion of the project.
