As of February 2017, the Education Fund of the American Copy Editors Society has awarded 93 scholarships since 1999 to undergraduates and graduate students from across the continent.

Winners have come from large universities, small colleges and in between. Not all have been journalism majors. But all have demonstrated the potential for successful careers in copy editing.

The winners are selected using these criteria:

Aubespin Scholarship Recipients

A single $2,500 scholarship is given each year to the student who best demonstrates a commitment to a career in copy editing, and demonstrates both exemplary work and academic achievement. Here are our recent winners.

ACES Scholarship Recipients

Four annual prizes worth $1,500 are awarded to students who are pursuing a career in copy editing and demonstrate exemplary skills. (The amount was increased in 2016.)
