About VOICES 2015
VOICES serves as a multimedia journalism training fellowship for college and graduate students, as well as a leadership program for mid-career journalists. The program is a recruiting tool to increase diversity in newsrooms. The most promising students will be selected and given the opportunity to build skills and develop their published work. Students will take part in this year’s AAJA convention in San Francisco in August from the 10-16. VOICES will also be celebrating its 25th year as an AAJA student program.
