The ACES Education Fund offers six scholarships each year to students in all disciplines interested in editing. One is the Bill Walsh scholarship, in honor of the late editor, author, and ACES guiding spirit.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants must be seeking degrees as enrolled college/university juniors, seniors, or graduate students during the summer and/or fall term in 2020. 
  • Scholarships are awarded without regard to the student’s major or field of academic concentration. 
  • Previous scholarship winners are not eligible.
  • The Bill Walsh scholarship will go to an applicant who aspires to edit news and who demonstrates the talent and passion for language that Bill devoted his life to.
  • Applicants for the other five scholarships should have a commitment to a career in the editing of written materials and demonstrate effectiveness in doing so.
  • By submitting a separate application for each, an entrant can seek both the Walsh and one of the other scholarships but can win only one.
  • Applications are sent by email and all documents must be in English.

Scholarship Value:

The winner of the Bill Walsh scholarship receives $3500 plus financial aid to attend the ACES national conference. Additionally, the ACES Aubespin scholarship winner receives $2500 and four other winners receive $1500 each — also with aid to attend the ACES conference.

About ACES Education Fund:

Since 1999, the ACES Education Fund, a nonprofit organization, and its predecessor have awarded 99 scholarships to deserving students who have a passion for editing. The Walsh scholarship honors Bill Walsh, author, blogger and longtime copy editor at the Washington Post. Walsh, who died in early 2017, was an active and creative member of the ACES Education Fund board.
