Ends on


AAJA is hosting Catalyst, a three-day boot camp for founders of color who want to learn how to fund and launch their own media products. The program is scheduled to take place January 29-31, 2020 at Northwestern University in San Francisco. 

We’re looking for people who are passionate about media and journalism, and are committed to elevating under-represented voices. Full-time and freelance journalists living in the US or abroad are encouraged to apply. If you're interested in being a part of the Catalyst class of 2020, please submit your application by 11:59pm PT on Friday, January 3.

While it costs nothing to apply, once you’re accepted into the program, there is a $450 program fee for AAJA members and $700 for non-AAJA members. If you’re not yet an AAJA member, you can register for an annual membership here. The Catalyst program fee covers program training plus breakfast, lunch and dinner.

If you have any questions about the program, contact Daniel Garcia at DanielG@aaja.org.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
