Hurry! May 1 application deadline for multimedia fellowships

Posted on by sbhatt

We know you’re hungry for training, but you may not have enough funds.

AAJA Seattle is here for you.

This year the chapter will offer three AAJA Seattle / 911 Media Arts fellowships for professional members and two fellowships for student members in good standing. Details below!

The professional fellowships, a new member benefit this year, offer up to $250 in reimbursement to professionals who are AAJA MEMBERS for covering half the cost of classes, equipment rental, or lab time at 911 Media Arts in Seattle’s U District.

The student fellowships cover the entire cost – up to $500 – of taking classes, renting equipment and using the editing suite at 911 Media’s office.

If you’ve let your membership lapse or aren’t a member, join AAJA today.

Professional members who want to apply should email a resume and a statement of up to 500 words to aajaseattle@gmail.com by 5 p.m., May 1, with “911 Media Arts fellowship” in the subject line. Applicants should state how the fellowship will help them move towards their career goals and a specific project they plan to undertake for their newsroom, a news publication/website, or the AAJA Seattle website, using the skills they learn in 911 Media classes.

Students have the same deadline but should use the one-stop student scholarships application form. Download it here.

Because this is the first year of the fellowships, the chapter board will determine how many fellowships to award in this application round. The board may elect to hold another fellowship application cycle after June.
