The AAJA Portland chapter is offering a $2,000 stipend to fund an academic intern working at an Oregon media outlet this fall semester.
The stipend is designed to offset costs of required college credit or housing and transportation needs. Any student must first secure an internship with an Oregon media outlet before applying for this stipend. Students who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs are eligible; recent college graduates may be considered.
The intern must meet AAJA’s goal of increasing diversity in newsrooms. AAJA Portland strongly encourages any student interested in applying for the stipend to become an AAJA member.
Applicants must submit name, resume, internship supervisor at media outlet and an essay (500 words) on the importance of diversity in the media.
