AAJA's all-expenses paid journalism training program for high school students of diverse backgrounds.

Attention student journalists! The Asian American Journalists Association is now accepting applications for JCamp, an all-expenses paid journalism training program for high school students of diverse backgrounds.

JCamp will celebrate its 17th year at the Temple University School of Media and Communication in Philadelphia, July 22-27. The six-day camp brings students together for intensive training in writing, photography, broadcast, online media and reporting led by professional journalists.

This program is free and open to current freshmen, sophomores and juniors in high school. Students of all races and ethnicities are encouraged to apply before the March 12, 2017 deadline.

I repeat: JCamp is an all-expenses paid program. Your travel, meals and lodging will be covered by AAJA.

The Asian American Journalists Association is a nonprofit educational and professional organization with more than 1,600 members across the U.S. and Asia. Part of AAJA's mission is to provide encouragement, information, advice and scholarship assistance to AAPI students who aspire to professional journalism careers.
