The Associated Press Media Editors Foundation will offer diversity scholarships to APME NewsTrain events in 2013 for print and broadcast journalists and students who are pursuing careers in journalism.
The scholarships cover registration and may cover some accommodations and travel expenses.
NewsTrain host committees will review applications and choose the recipients.
The next NewsTrain will be held Sept. 27-28 in Colorado Springs. In all, up to four scholarships will be awarded for the Colorado Springs event and 10 for the Seattle session Oct. 3-4.
