Diversity Grant Deadline April 15

Summer/Fall grants to be announced in May

AAN members have until April 15 to submit applications for the next round of Diversity Internship grants.

AAN created the program in 2001 to help alternative weeklies hire and train top-quality minority journalists. Grants were awarded for Winter interns to Eugene Weekly and the San Antonio Current.

In making its selections for the next two grants, AAN’s Diversity Committee will consider the financial and diversity needs of the applying papers as well as qualifications of the interns.

Grant winners will be announced in May 2002.

Members can apply by completing an AAN application form and submitting the intern’s name and writing samples. Application forms and instructions will be mailed to editors and publishers in the next week, or they can be downloaded. Click here to download a PDF of the application form.
