The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is proud to announce the 2014 NBC Summer Partnership. NBC will place up to four selected students as paid interns for their programs based in New York City. NBC News will determine the show placement of the interns, but students will have the opportunity to inform NBC News of their preferences. The selected participants will be paid hourly for their work, and must be able to work full time in New York City during the summer of 2014. AAJA will also connect each partnership intern with a professional journalist mentor through the AAJA Broadcast Mentoring Program.
The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational and professional organization with more than 1,600 members across the United States and Asia. Since its founding, AAJA has been at the forefront of change in the journalism industry.
Our mission is four-fold: to provide a means of association and support among Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) journalists, and to advance AAPI journalists as news managers and media executives; to provide encouragement, information, advice and scholarship assistance to AAPI students who aspire to professional journalism careers; to provide to the AAPI community an awareness of news media and an understanding of how to gain fair access; and to research and point out when news media organizations stray from accuracy and fairness in the coverage of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and AAPI issues.
AAJA offers a variety of educational, skills training and professional development programs for its student and professional members, as well as guidance on coverage of AAPI issues for the journalism industry and resources on working with the media for AAPI communities.
