For the first time, members of the NAHJ Washington, D.C. Chapter will help three summer interns with transportation expenses. Two students will receive the Charlie Ericksen Internship Supplement worth $200 on a metro card and $45 for NAHJ Student Membership. The Chapter Board voted to help a third student with $150 for a Metro Card. Since, no student applied for convention assistance, the Chapter Board decided to award that money to a student who applied for the Charlie Ericksen Internship Supplement.

General Price $50. $25, if you bring a side dish.
