2024 Stanford Chen Internship Grant

This internship grant awards $1,500 to college juniors, seniors and graduate students who have secured an internship at a news outlet. Students from the Pacific Northwest or who attend a Northwest college or university are especially encouraged to apply, though a Northwest connection alone does not determine who receives a grant. Applicants who will be interning at small to medium sized outlets will receive priority.

Eligibility and Rules

  • Currently enrolled full-time at an accredited community college, junior college, college or university
  • Must have secured a summer internship before applying for the internship grant. The stipend must be used for living expenses and/or transportation during your internship and may not be used for any college expenses. Grantees will be required to sign an agreement acknowledging this.
  • Must have a serious interest in pursuing journalism as a career.
  • Must be an active AAJA member. 

Application Requirements

  • Resume
  • One letter of recommendation
  • A letter verifying your summer internship
  • A brief statement describing your financial need
  • In 500 words or less, answer these questions: What kind of experience do you expect as an intern. Describe your career goals and why AAJA's mission is important to you.
