NABJ Acel Moore Community Reporting Scholarship
From the age of 22, Acel Moore had a powerful desire to make a contribution to the world, and decided that journalism would be the best way to reach his goal. In 1962, he took a job as a clerk at The Philadelphia Inquirer, and six years later became a reporter assigned to cover the police beat. He worked his way through the ranks, ultimately becoming a columnist, a member and associate editor of the Editorial Board, and the newspaper’s Associate Editor Emeritus, a title he held until his death.

Along the way, Acel won a Pulitzer Prize with colleague Wendell L. Rawls Jr. for an investigation of harsh conditions at the Farview (PA) State Hospital. Their stories exposed the brutal treatment of mentally disturbed prisoners and led to reforms.

Acel is most remembered for his ability to connect to everyday people and his love for telling their stories, which had been largely ignored by the mainstream press. Through them, he captured the universality of the human experience.

The Acel Moore Scholarship for Community Journalism aims to continue Acel’s work as well as honor him as a journalist and a human being. The winners of the scholarship should reflect the qualities that set him apart: a deep regard for “regular folk” and the courage to speak truth to power through their stories. Apply by April 14.

The fellowship provides a $6,000 stipend plus training and mentorship opportunities, including a couple of pretty nice trips, for college undergraduates who are interested in developing “press freedom service projects” that benefit high-school students. It could be anything — making a film, recording a podcast, building an app — whatever moves the ball forward in publicizing and overcoming the barriers that prevent all teens, most especially girls, from making their voices heard on the issues they care about. This is a remote position that students do on their own campuses part-time around their classwork. There is more background about the program here: www.theactivevoice.org.

We are seeking applicants for the incoming 2017-18 fellowship class until March 31. Our ideal candidate is an undergraduate journalism student who combines First Amendment zeal with an interest in mentoring teen girls. We are especially interested in recruiting a racially and ethnically diverse pool of fellows, as that can be helpful in their outreach to underserved communities.

Alliance For Women in Media Scholarships

This organization has four scholarships.

Recognizing and supporting future generations of women in media is as important as recognizing current achievements. The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation gives students starting their careers nearly $20,000 in scholarships annually.

We are proud to provide deserving young women the opportunity to complete their education and meet their full potential.

Our scholarship program would not be possible without the help of our partners, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude.

All scholarship materials must be submitted by May 5, 2017.

 

Summer 2017-Cronkite-Zocalo Fellowship in Santa Monica- Paid
The Cronkite School is accepting applications for student fellowships in sustainability journalism with Zócalo Public Square at ASU’s new Santa Monica., Calif., bureau.

The fellowship will be offered in the summer 2017 semester with students working out of the new Cronkite School bureau in Santa Monica. Fellows will work up to 40 hours a week for $10 an hour, producing content for the Zócalo website and its media partners, and assisting with Zocalo’s public events. Students also may apply to receive Cronkite internship credit for the fellowship. Students will be responsible for arranging their own housing. The Cronkite School will cover the cost of travel to and from Santa Monica.

Zócalo Public Square, a project of the Center for Social Cohesion at Arizona State University, is a not-for-profit Ideas Exchange that seeks to engage a new, young and diverse generation in the public square through a blend of live events and humanities journalism. It partners with educational, cultural and philanthropic institutions to present free, non-partisan public events and conferences in cities across the U.S. and beyond and to publish original daily journalism that is distributed to more than 100 media outlets nationwide.

Fellows may be graduate or undergraduate Cronkite students with an interest in sustainability, energy, the environment and related fields. Duties include generating story ideas, identifying and working with Zocalo contributors (who include journalists, scholars and non-writers), writing and editing articles for the website, working with media syndicate partners, building audiences for journalism and events through social and other media, and assisting with the planning and execution of public discussions and lectures on current affairs topics. Fellows will work with a small staff of writers and editors who produce new content daily for the website and its media partners and who solicit contributions from diverse people whose voices would otherwise go unheard. Strong editing skills are a must as are curiosity and energy. The successful applicant will be able to generate story ideas off the news that provide a different perspective on current topics and write and edit for voice. Some evening work is required. Fellows may have the opportunity to travel to Zócalo events in California and around the country. A car is not required but is suggested.

To apply for summer 2017, send a resume and a statement of interest to: Cronkite Director of Career Services Mike Wong at mike.wong@asu.edu. by April 4.

NABJ Acel Moore Community Reporting Scholarship
From the age of 22, Acel Moore had a powerful desire to make a contribution to the world, and decided that journalism would be the best way to reach his goal. In 1962, he took a job as a clerk at The Philadelphia Inquirer, and six years later became a reporter assigned to cover the police beat. He worked his way through the ranks, ultimately becoming a columnist, a member and associate editor of the Editorial Board, and the newspaper’s Associate Editor Emeritus, a title he held until his death.

Along the way, Acel won a Pulitzer Prize with colleague Wendell L. Rawls Jr. for an investigation of harsh conditions at the Farview (PA) State Hospital. Their stories exposed the brutal treatment of mentally disturbed prisoners and led to reforms.

Acel is most remembered for his ability to connect to everyday people and his love for telling their stories, which had been largely ignored by the mainstream press. Through them, he captured the universality of the human experience.

The Acel Moore Scholarship for Community Journalism aims to continue Acel’s work as well as honor him as a journalist and a human being. The winners of the scholarship should reflect the qualities that set him apart: a deep regard for “regular folk” and the courage to speak truth to power through their stories. Apply by April 14.

In addition, all applicants should submit an essay, between 300 and 500 words, discussing the following topic:

The SPJ Code of Ethics touches on several specific areas, including the gathering and reporting of news, as well as ethical behavior when dealing with sources. In an era where the rise of “fake news” is eroding the public’s confidence in the media, it is more important than ever for legitimate journalists to be mindful of SPJ’s Code of Ethics, specifically, that they should “Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work. Verify information before releasing it. Remember that neither speed nor format excuses inaccuracy.”

Bearing this in mind, what do you think is a journalist’s greatest responsibility in combating the prevalence of “fake news” and helping to restore the public’s trust in the American media?

Summer 2017- PR Internship at Decibel Blue
Our culture is supportive, collaborative and as trite as it sounds, much like a family (the functional kind). The Cove is a creative and frenetic, albeit peaceful place. We don’t take ourselves seriously but are very serious about our client’s businesses.
The Trainees are the backbone of our organization and embody everything we believe in.

How Do I Apply?
Send your resume and cover letter to info@decibelblue.com.
Tell us why YOU belong in the Cove. We don’t want to know about your classes or your great communication skills. If we wanted token answers, we’d hire a myna bird. DO say something interesting. Be memorable. Nothing impresses us more.
David interviews every Trainee. Don’t guess what he wants to hear.  Relax. Be yourself. Make it a conversation.
Oh, and it helps if you ask what a Honeybear is.

What Can I Expect?
This is not Mad Men. Great Trainees understand that every task matters. You don’t get anywhere in life without a little grunt work. Answering phones, scanning articles, going to Costco, and making media drops at 5 AM wearing the Dunkin’ Donuts mascot costumes, are some of the typical “intern” duties.

However, you will be groomed to act like a professional. How to write an effective email. How to handle delicate situations. How to be an ambassador for Decibel Blue outside of the Cove.

You will be trained in marketing/advertising/public relations. The ins-and-outs of writing press releases, assembling editorial calendars, pitching reporters, helping clients, developing ad campaigns, using social media. And then some.

We will constantly challenge you to prove that you belong.  We watch how you represent Decibel Blue and we hear how you interact with our clients and friends. We are casual and like to have fun, but this is still a business. We don’t care if you have your Facebook page open, but deadlines better be met. Your tasks are your responsibility. Learn from your mistakes. Better yet, teach the Trainee who just started so they don’t make the same ones.

You have to earn that Decibel Blue credential on your resume. We don’t hand it out to just anyone. Treat Decibel Blue like a college course, take it seriously, work hard/have fun, and you will get your credit.
Real life experience is precious. We want you to have it here at Decibel Blue.

Who Are the Graduates and Past Trainees?

Thunderbird MBA grads, Cronkite students, career changers, freshmen, professional reporters and college dropouts have all joined the ranks of Decibel Blue Trainees.

What Do I Commit and Get?

We appreciate that the Program is unpaid and people are juggling jobs, families, class and personal commitments. The ideal time commitment is 15-20 hours a week for four to six months. It takes that long to learn the ins and outs, see accounts start up and campaigns roll out. Most importantly, you need to earn our trust before you will be assigned the more substantial and interesting projects.

Anything Else?

What you put into the Decibel Blue Training Program will reflect what you take away. Work hard and you will make friendships for life. You will grow your professional network in ways you never imagined. Your resume bullet points will shame your competition.

Your time here can vary. Some people stay a few months and then leave for a job. Others are here for a semester. Several have been with us more than a year. Whatever your time commitment, make it count instead of just sitting home and playing X-Box. It’s your future, folks.

Excel in the Program and we will help you build the tools for your career. We will work with you on your resume, cover letters and interviewing skills. Write recommendations. Cold call employers to sing your praises. Alumni are working or attending grad school in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Denver, New York and San Diego. We also belong to an international network of PR firms and have the capacity to open doors for you in dozens of cities around the world.

The Valley of the Sun Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) offers a $500 scholarship for the fall term beginning August 2017. The scholarship is open to all community college and university students in Arizona, studying journalism, mass communicaitons or a related field.

Applicants must provide a cover letter (no more than two pages), detailing the student’s current school
enrollment, area of interest in the field (broadcast, print, online, etc.), what career path he/she would
like to pursue after graduation, and what personal goals he/she would like to achieve as a professional
journalist.

In addition, all applicants should submit an essay, between 300 and 500 words, discussing the following topic:

The SPJ Code of Ethics touches on several specific areas, including the gathering and reporting of news, as well as ethical behavior when dealing with sources. In an era where the rise of “fake news” is eroding the public’s confidence in the media, it is more important than ever for legitimate journalists to be mindful of SPJ’s Code of Ethics, specifically, that they should “Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work. Verify information before releasing it. Remember that neither speed nor format excuses inaccuracy.”

Bearing this in mind, what do you think is a journalist’s greatest responsibility in combating the prevalence of “fake news” and helping to restore the public’s trust in the American media?

Deadline for submission: Must be received by Friday, March 31.

NASCAR Pit Notes Group- Volunteer
On March 17-19, Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) will be conducting its first major race weekend of the year. I am again looking for some aspiring journalists who are interested in experiencing sports reporting at the highest level to work as volunteer pit note reporters. Now in our 11th year, the Pit Notes Reporter program has proven to be exceptionally successful for all involved.

As the fourth major race weekend of the NASCAR season, the races at Phoenix play crucial roles in the developing story lines that begin this week at Daytona. It is the job of my Pit Notes team to bring those story lines to the attention of the media.

Please note that Pit Note Reporters are volunteer positions. The track will, however, provide food and beverages.

I am the editor of the Pit Notes at PIR. The Pit Potes are the basic bits of information used to keep the media informed of news events at the track during a race weekend. It is my job to decide what is important and what is not and then to put a brief record of the newsworthy item into the notes. They generally run 50 to 70 pages for an entire three-day race weekend.

I obtain a significant portion of the information used in the Pit Notes by communicating by radio with various volunteer Pit Notes Reporters (usually 7) and directing them where to go, who to find, and what to ask. The key is taking complete and accurate quotes (as you will see, these quotes are regarded as “gospel” by the media; they will be copied EXACTLY in newspapers and magazines) and doing so quickly. At the end of each race, Pit Note Reporters will be assigned to either get quotes from several drivers or to attend the post-race news conference and get the quotes from other drivers about what happened on the track.

Afterwards, Pit Note Reporters return to the Media Center and type the quotes (as quickly as possible) into a computer so that I can edit them and we can distribute them to the reporters. Because Phoenix is not in the Eastern time zone, it is important to get the information to the media as quickly as we can so that the stories that appear in the next morning’s newspapers on the East coast are as complete and accurate as possible.

The track will provide my staff with credentials providing full-access to the pits, garage area and media facilities. There is no assigned seat for this volunteer job and participants must act professionally at all times (e.g., requests for autographs, asking celebrities to pose for selfie photographs, etc., are strictly forbidden).

Working as a Pit Notes Reporter is an opportunity that enables aspiring sports writers to see the sport from an unique perspective; I can add that almost everyone who has volunteered to do this work at the various tracks I have established this program has certainly enjoyed the experience (though it does tend be a physically draining endeavor).

Past knowledge of NASCAR or any form of auto racing would be helpful, but it is NOT necessary. I will train people what to look for and what to ask.

Those who volunteer for the March 17-19 weekend will be able to take home a copy of the weekend’s notes to add to their clipping portfolio.

Because of some outside conflicts, I have a limited number of openings on my team. Some of my team will graduate in May, so additional openings will be available. Applicants who apply now and are approved will have priority over those who may apply next Fall.

The March 17-19 race weekend will feature two races in three days, so events will be busy but not exceptionally intense. Friday and Saturday will be the most difficult days – they are the longest (in terms of most on-track action) and feature the most diverse activity (featuring practice and qualifying sessions for multiple classes). We will have a staff meeting each day to discuss expectations for the current day and to discuss problems encountered the previous day and possible ways to overcome them.

I need a full commitment for all three days of action from anyone who wants to be a pit reporter. It is up to each individual student to make his or her own arrangements to make up any class work that would be missed by attending Friday activities at the track.

A typical day at the track begins BEFORE the first on-track activity occurs (approximately 9 a.m.) and ends about two hours AFTER the checkered flag falls; the notes produced after the end of the race are probably the most important. We generally conclude our duties two-and-a-half hours after the drop of the checkered flag. The track supplies food (at least lunch, sometimes breakfast and dinner) and beverages. Nobody is asked to work constantly during the practice sessions, but during the time trials and races, the pit note staff is quite active. Attached is the preliminary schedule for the race weekend.

If any journalism students are curious about this opportunity or if you have specific questions, I can be contacted by return eMail or I can be called at 253-220-2566 (despite the area code, I am based in New York so if anyone wishes to call, they should be aware that I am in the Eastern time zone. No calls after 8 p.m. Arizona time, please).

Those who wish to apply for this opportunity must supply the following material and use the greeting, “Dear Mr. Chuhran:”

1.) A brief statement (6 sentences or less) about why you want to join my Pit Notes reporters and why you would be an asset to my team; the statement in your original eMail pretty much covers what I want, so just review what you sent me and include a variation of it with your other material,

2.) a collection of 3 or 4 writing samples or clippings that demonstrate your writing ability (these do not have to be about NASCAR or sports – I just want to see how well you write), and

3.) a list of 3 to 6 references (names, eMail addresses and phone numbers) who can speak of your character and/or your work habits (past supervisors at part-time jobs are fine).

Being a Freshman is NOT a liability in applying for this position. In fact, I will ONLY consider Freshmen and Sophomores. I want the training and experience that you get to be available to me for future events, so Seniors and current Juniors provide only a short-term assistance. Being a Freshman actually could be advantageous to me since I could theoretically have your assistance for 10 major race weekends over the course of your undergraduate years at ASU.

I look forward to reviewing your materials. After that review, I will be in touch; please also include a phone number where you can be reached.

Please send these materials to me at pitnotes1@gmail.com.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING ALL APPLICATION MATERIAL IS 12:01 A.M. ON THURSDAY, MARCH 2.

I certainly would be available to act as a reference for any student who successfully serves as a Pit Notes Reporter and I would gladly help those students with a job description that could be used as part of a resume.
