“Studying abroad has been a wonderful, eye-opening experience so far, and I’m very grateful for the continued support from AAJA in helping make it happen.â€

AAJA SF is once again offering up to $10,000 in scholarships to outstanding high school and college students who live in or attend school in the Bay Area. You don’t have to be a journalism or mass communications major, but you must demonstrate serious intent to pursue a journalism career through strong work samples. Students are generally selected based on their journalistic ability (as demonstrated by their published work), commitment to journalism, sensitivity to Asian Pacific American issues, financial need and scholastic achievement.
