We are pleased to announce the AAJA-Asia Professional Development Travel Stipend Program, which will award US$500 to one chapter member to be used toward attending the AAJA National Convention in San Francisco. The deadline to apply is Sunday, July 12, midnight Hong Kong time (GMT+8). All Asia chapter members including board members are welcome to apply.
Hundreds of journalists will gather in San Francisco for Convention 2015, which will feature four different programming tracks like reporting and editing, data and design, and more.
Applicants will be judged by their past and potential contributions to the AAJA chapter (40%), financial need (30%), and professional development goals (30%), and will have a chance to address each in three short essays. The winner will also be expected to host a small talk or presentation in their home city to present what they learned to fellow chapter members and renew their membership for 2016.
The application form is here.
Best of luck!
