C HICAGO (jGLi) – Joseph G. Lariosa, correspondent of the Journal Group Link International, a Chicago, Illinois-based news agency, was among the 44 recipients of the Professional Training Fellowship & Chapter Initiative offered by Ford Foundation. They will attend the state-of-the art training available at the 22nd Annual National Convention of the Asian-American Journalists Association from Aug. 10-13, 2011, in Detroit, Michigan, according to Antonio M. Salas, membership and chapter development manager of AAJA based in San Francisco, California.


Mr. Lariosa is an AAJA member under the Chicago chapter headed by Ameet Sachdev, Business Reporter of the Chicago Tribune.


Winners were selected based on their written essay on their newsroom experiences and from the ranks of those unemployed or underemployed.


The fellowship will cover convention costs, which include convention registration, airfare and hotel accommodations.


Fellows will be required to blog their experiences for the AAJA website and share training information learned from the convention with their chapters. In addition, recipients of the award must volunteer two hours for their chapter.


The Asian-American Journalists Association (AAJA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization with more than 1,400 members/volunteers in 21 chapters across the U.S. and Asia.

The AAJA's mission is to provide a means of association and support among Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) journalists, 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 research and point out when news media organizations stray from accuracy and fairness in the coverage of AAPIs. # # #
