Deadline: Nov 15, 2012
College juniors, seniors and graduate students who have demonstrated an interest in and aptitude for copy editing can apply for several scholarships awarded each year by the ACES Education Fund, an affiliate of the American Copy Editors Society. Applications for the 2011-2012 scholarship have passed; forms for the 2012-2013 scholarships will be posted in spring 2012.
The top award, for $2,500, is named for Merv Aubespin, a former president of the National Association of Black Journalists, a longtime champion of copy editors and, as the chairman of the Human Resources Committee of the American Society of Newspaper Editors in the mid-1990s, the “godfather” of ACES.
The other four awards are for $1,000 each.
The scholarships are open to students who will be college juniors, seniors or graduate students in the fall, and to graduating students who will take full-time copy editing jobs or internships. Applications will be evaluated by a panel of five experienced copy editors.
