About the supplement:
Our intention is to help students who go to school and live in the District, Maryland, and Virginia. We understand many students intern for free and may not have the financial support to do so. We hope this money will help ease the burden on their families.We have worked closely with NAHJ founder Charlie Ericksen on how to distribute this money. He has helped launch the careers of many journalists. We honor his commitment to journalism through this supplement in his name.
