The American Copy Editors Society (ACES) Education Fund awards five scholarships each year to students considering careers in copy editor. The scholarships range from $1,000 to $2,500. Each winner also receives free registration for the annual ACES conference and travel assistance to attend the conference.
The group is now accepting scholarship applications for the current (2012-13) school year. Juniors, seniors and graduate students are eligible.
It’s been several years since a Shorthorn staff member received one of these scholarships. Let’s break that streak.
The application deadline is Nov. 15.
