AAJA Seattle 30th Anniversary Fund Grant Application

AAJA Seattle knows it’s more important than ever to support its members as the industry continues to evolve and change in big ways. Members are pursuing fellowships, going back to school, training in new skills and participating in programs such as the Asian American Journalists Association’s Executive Leadership Program to help them transition to leadership and entrepreneurial roles.

The 30th Anniversary Fund is available to mid-career journalists who are pursuing training or schooling. Funds are available for AAJA Seattle members who want to pursue the AAJA Executive Leadership Program or higher education, skills training and more.

Mid-career (5 years or more of professional experience) AAJA Seattle members are eligible for these grants for leadership or journalism career training opportunities.

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.

Applications are due quarterly (March 1, June 1, Sept. 1 and Dec. 1) and availability of funds will be determined by the Seattle chapter board. Decisions will be made by the end of the months of March, June, September and December.

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.
