Due Date:

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is now accepting applications for JCamp, an all-expenses-paid journalism training program for talented freshman, sophomore- and junior-level high school students of diverse backgrounds.

Students do not have to identify as Asian American to be eligible to participate. Students interested in journalism need to apply before the March 25, 2018 deadline. 

JCamp will celebrate its 18th year in 2018 at the Wayne State University School of Fine, Performing & Communication Arts in Detroit, MI, July 30 - August 4. The six-day camp brings students together for intensive training in writing, photography, broadcast, online media and reporting led by professional journalists. Travel, lodging and meals will be covered for the selected students.

Past JCamp speakers include Hoda Kotb, co-host of NBC's "Today Show;" Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., former publisher of The New York Times; Chuck Todd, host of "Meet the Press;" and the late Gwen Ifill, host of "Washington Week" and "PBS NewsHour."

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is a non-profit educational and professional organization with more than 1,500 members across the United States and Asia. Part of AAJA's mission is to provide encouragement, information, advice and scholarship assistance to AAPI students who aspire to professional journalism careers.
