SAJA, the South Asian Journalists Association, is one of the most dynamic journalism organizations in the U.S. and Canada. It serves as a network for education, inspiration, training South-Asian journalists in America and those covering South Asia and South Asian diaspora. SAJA aims to upgrade the coverage of South Asia and uplift the standards of journalism.
Founded in March 1994 with 18 members, today it connects and serves more than 1,000 journalists at news outlets, big and small. SAJA has members spread across North America. Over the years, SAJA has given out more than $200,000 in scholarships and fellowships.
All of this SAJA does with NO paid staff. Its volunteers - from the elected board to chapter coordinators to individuals helping with various events - make SAJA possible.
