AAJA is proud to announce the 2013 Council for International Cooperation/Anna Chennault Scholarship and encourages rising college sophomores to apply. The winner will receive a $3,900 scholarship and an opportunity to be a Voices student news project participant at the 2013 AAJA convention in New York with all travel, lodging and registration costs covered. Applications must be received by May 3, 2013.


Stanford-Chen-Pic-2AAJA is now accepting applications for the 2013 Stanford Chen Internship Fund Grant. AAJA will award one or more news internship grant(s) of $1,750, available to current college juniors, seniors and graduate students. The grants are for print, online, broadcast or photography interns at small- to medium-size outlets.

The Stanford Chen Internship Fund Grant supports college students needing help to bridge some of the costs that might otherwise keep them from taking an internship and expanding their journalism skills in an internship.


  1. Applicants must have a serious interest in pursuing a career in journalism.
  2. Applicants must have already secured an internship with a print company (daily circulation under 100,000), broadcasting company (markets smaller than the top 50) or online company.
  3. The grant is to be used only toward living expenses and transportation during the actual internship.
  4. AAJA membership is encouraged for all applicants and required for the selected grant recipient(s).

AAJA strongly encourages applications from students who grew up in the Pacific Northwest, are attending college in the region or will intern at media outlets in Washington, Oregon or Idaho. To learn more, visit AAJA.
