Since 1985, Seattle’s AAJA chapter has provided scholarships for students, professional development for journalists and service to the community in the Pacific Northwest. For about three decades, AAJA Seattle has organized the Northwest Journalists of Color scholarship, which has helped more than 100 student journalists pursue our profession. We also provide the 30th Anniversary Fund, which grants assistance for mid-career members seeking professional development. Our chapter has organized workshops for Speed Mentoring and Media Access for local nonprofits. Our signature networking events include the Chef Showcase fundraiser at the Columbia Tower Club, regular Dim Sum Saturdays and our annual Lunar New Year banquet.
