The ACES Education Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that supports ACES programs and services. As an agency, ACES perceived the need to better engage members of the community with our vision and goals and to provide a means to support small, worthy, but unfunded ACES projects as they arise.
The ACES Education Fund, an affiliate of the American Copy Editors Society, offers scholarships to juniors, seniors and grad students interested in careers in copy editing.
Students who are graduating in 2010 and who have or will have full-time copy editing jobs or internships are also eligible. Among the criteria used by judges are commitment to copy editing as a career, work experience in copy editing and abilities in copy editing, as demonstrated by examples and recommendations.
The top candidate will be awarded the $2,500 Aubespin scholarship, named for Merv Aubespin, a longtime journalist, a former president of the National Association of Black Journalists and the “godfather” of ACES. At least four other candidates will receive scholarships of $1,000 each. All the winners will be granted free registration for the ACES national conference in March 2011 in Phoenix. Some financial aid for winners to travel to the conference may be available as well.
