Pia Christensen Travel Assistance Fund

As many of our members may know, AHCJ lost a friend and colleague, Pia Christensen, to cancer at age 50 in May 2021. Pia served as managing editor/online services for 15 years and was part of the Missouri School of Journalism staff for 20 years.

Pia was especially enthusiastic about AHCJ’s annual conference and would have been very supportive of any effort to make it easier for people to attend. In the past, AHCJ has been able to offer a limited amount of travel assistance aside from our formal fellowship programs for those members who might need some help with costs.

In 2022, AHCJ introduced a conference assistance scholarship in Pia’s name to memorialize her contributions to AHCJ.

Conference assistance funds are available to help defray some — but not all — associated expenses for members who are interested in attending AHCJ events.
