American Copy Editors Society (ACES) Copy Editing Scholarship
All ACES scholarships are for potential professional copy editors. The scholarships are open to students who will be college juniors, seniors or graduate students in the fall, and to graduating students who will take full-time copy editing jobs or internships.
Applications will be evaluated by a panel of five experienced copy editors. The top award, for $2,500, is named for Merv Aubespin, a former president of the National Association of Black Journalists, a longtime champion of copy editors and, as the chairman of the Human Resources Committee of the American Society of Newspaper Editors in the mid-1990s, the "godfather" of ACES.
