The ACES Education Fund will be awarding six scholarships for the 2020-21 academic year. The Bill Walsh scholarship began in 2017-18, in honor of the late author and Washington Post copy editor; the amount is $3,500. In addition, the Education Fund will award the $2,500 Aubespin scholarship and four $1,500 scholarships. Each winner will be entitled to free registration plus money toward attending the national ACES conference.
Here you can also donate to the Richard S. Holden Fellowship. In the last year, Rich’s colleagues at ACES and the Dow Jones News Fund successfully prevailed on him to allow his name to be attached to a good cause: the Richard S. Holden Fellowship. The fellowship, to be formally launched soon, will be dedicated to advancing early- and mid-career professionals in their work as editors and aspiring industry leaders, and to promoting diversity and inclusion in our ranks.
You can help ensure the ACES Education Fund continues to be self-sustaining and even increase scholarship amounts or the number of scholarships in the future.
