The Seattle chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is accepting applications from student members in Washington state for two scholarships — the Northwest Journalists of Color Scholarship and the Founders’ Scholarship.
The Northwest Journalists of Color Scholarship awards up to $2,500 to students who intend to pursue careers in journalism. Eligible applicants are students who will attend a college or university in Washington state in the fall and Washington state residents or seniors attending a high school in Washington who will attend an accredited college or university in the fall.
The Founders’ scholarship was established in 2000 to honor Frank Abe, Ron Chew, and Lori Matsukawa, who founded the AAJA Seattle chapter in 1985. This scholarship covers the student registration fee for the 2014 National Convention, which will be held Aug. 13 through Aug. 16 in Washington D.C. A small stipend for travel and accommodations is available. (end)
