Women journalists can apply to attend a conference.

The Journalism and Women Symposium (JAWS) offers fellowships that cover travel and registration to the JAWS Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP), for three days of training, networking and professional development.

This year’s JAWS CAMP will take place Oct. 12 to 14 in Welches, Oregon.

The Diversity Fellowship seeks journalists who are traditionally underrepresented in newsrooms, including but not limited to women of color, journalists in the LGBTQ community and those with disabilities. 

The Betsy Wade Legacy Fellowship supports a working newswoman with at least five years of experience chosen for the commitment to diversity represented in her work and interests, and whose work reflects the value of journalism in safeguarding a democratic society.

The Next Step Fellowship is aimed at veteran journalists. The Entrepreneurial Fellowship helps a woman journalist move forward with an innovative journalism project. And the Emerging Journalist Fellowship is open to professionals in the early stages of their career.

The deadline to apply is May 18.
