Executive Leadership Program

The Executive Leadership Program (ELP) is for any AAJA member who is interested in moving ahead in the workplace and developing the necessary skills to achieve goals small and large. ELP has designed a program that is challenging, practical and life changing and is recommended for anyone with four to seven years of journalism experience or more. The program explores the responsibilities and challenges of the media workplace and examines how cultural values come into play in newsroom dynamics.

JCamp for High School Students

AAJA’s JCamp is a national multicultural journalism program for high school students. The six-day training camp brings together culturally diverse students from across the nation to learn from veteran journalists and leading media executives. JCamp participants will receive hands-on training and produce multiplatform news packages for the program’s news site, JCamp Live.

Voices for College Students

VOICES is a rare opportunity for college students to develop multimedia and reporting skills in the company of industry professionals from all over the world. Just as newsrooms across the country are adjusting to smaller staffing and new technology, the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) has redesigned its student convention program to simulate the convergence newsroom of tomorrow.

Scholarships & Internship Grants

AAJA annually offers up to $20,000 in scholarships and grants to journalism students to help offset the costs of education, internships, living expenses and other opportunities.

Sponsor an AAJA student

Consider sponsoring a $25 student membership or a $150 National Convention student registration on behalf of a student you know, your alma mater, college media outlet or for an intern at your news organization.

Mentorship Program

AAJA’s National Mentoring Program is a year-long program, where broadcast (television/radio), print/online and photography students and professionals are paired up with more experienced journalists with several factors in mind, including geography, gender and career interests.
