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.
