Are you a student who wants to go to the 2009 AAJA National Convention in Boston? We have one convention registration available for students. If you are a student member, please apply for the AAJA Seattle Founder’s Scholarship by June 3.
To apply, please submit a 500-word statement on what you hope to learn at the conference. Send the statement to AAJA Seattle at firstname.lastname@example.org with the phrase “Founder’s Scholarship” in the subject line. Please also include a two to three sentence biography that states your age, what school you attend and your major, when you plan to graduate and your newspaper, radio, online or TV experience.
The recipient will be responsible for airfare, lodging and any other incidentals. He or she may be able to split a room with another journalist attending the conference. The chapter has members going to the convention who may still be looking for a roommate. This year’s convention is Aug. 12-15.
