Individuals with at least five years of experience are encouraged to apply. Space is limited and applications are reviewed on a rotating basis until filled.


Tuition for ELP is $1,000 for AAJA members and  $1,350 for non-members. It includes the costs of training materials and a registration for AAJA-Asia’s 2023 New.Now.Next Media Conference.

Applicants accepted to ELP must pay for the program by May 15. For those needing it, there will be an option to pay the tuition in two payments. Applicants who cancel their registration after May 24 will not receive a refund.

Those in need of financial assistance may reach out to their employers or local AAJA chapter leadership (AAJA members only).


The Google News Initiative (GNI) is supporting AAJA-Asia’s ELP Program with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) fellowships. Ten participants in Asia from under-represented communities will be selected to attend ELP and receive full tuition grants. Applicants from under-represented groups within their country’s or community’s media industry are encouraged to apply.

Consideration will be given to gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, religious affiliation, socio-economic background, age and other experiences of disadvantage. AAJA-Asia welcomes all applications for the DEI fellowships.
