AAJA Seattle at 30!

AAJA Seattle 30th Anniversary Fund Grants

In 2016, in celebration of AAJA Seattle’s 30 years of promoting diversity in media, the board announced the 30th Anniversary Fund, to help mid-career AAJA members with their next stages in the next stages of their careers.

We’re excited to launch our grant application, which is open to mid-career AAJA Seattle members. The AAJA Seattle chapter will offer grants of half the tuition cost of ELP or any other AAJA-affiliated training program. Members pursuing other types of programs may apply for reimbursement of up to $500 by the board, at the board’s discretion and determined by the availability of funds.

Eligible programs include masters’ degrees, programs and workshops that build journalism or leadership skills.

Decisions will be made quarterly. Recipients may receive funding once every three years, though applicants who are denied a grant in one quarter may apply again for the same or a different program.

You can help with this important training. Please donate below.
