ACES: The Society for Editing and the Dow Jones News Fund have created the Richard S. Holden Diversity Fellowship, a pilot program dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion by advancing early- and mid-career professionals in their work as editors and aspiring industry leaders. Our goal is to enable participants to obtain the training and support they need for a faster track to success.

The organizations will initially award up to three fellowships of up to $3,000 each. Candidates from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply. The grants are intended to enable Holden Fellows to enroll in established training programs, attend seminars and conferences, or pursue other activities aimed at advancing their careers. Fellows may apply their funds to travel, course tuition, conference fees, or other costs related to their continuing career development and skill building.

Startup funding for the Holden Diversity Fellowship has been provided by grants of $7,500 each from the ACES Education Fund and the Dow Jones News Fund, as well as generous donations from individual members of the ACES Education Fund board of directors and other friends of the late Rich Holden.

After the initial application and selection period is completed, ACES and the Dow Jones News Fund plan to award later grants on a rolling basis, with deadlines of approximately once every quarter.
