The Washington Association of Black Journalists has partnered with the Washington Post Young Journalists Development Program (YJDP) to give high school students in the Greater D.C. area an inside look at careers in journalism through the Urban Journalism Workshop (UJW).

During the workshop, experienced journalists from The Washington Post, the Associated Press, National Public Radio and other media companies train students in the basics of traditional and multimedia journalism.

Three scholarships will be awarded to seniors who have excelled during the workshop and demonstrate strong research, reporting and writing ability. There is no fee to apply or attend. All high school students in DC and suburban Maryland and Virginia are encouraged to apply.

This year’s workshop runs March 5 to April 30,2016. Complete applications should be mailed to: WABJ Workshop, P.O. Box 2683, Washington, DC 20013. All applications must be postmarked by January 22, 2016 for consideration.
