Want a career in copy editing? Just have a passion for it? Whatever the case may be, you should apply to the American Copy Editors Society Scholarship for a chance at either $1,000 or $2,500. You’ll need an original essay, a resume, three references and either a showcase of tweets or headlines that you’ve written, or an answer to an exercise they have posted. Send all that in and you’ll be in the running to win.
Get all of the information you need from their site, http://www.copydesk.org/education-fund/apply/. Deadline is November 16th.
