Yes, there's money in copy editing. Well, at least for students. If you're a college junior, senior or graduate student who intends to pursue a career in this godforsaken field, you're eligible for a scholarship from the American Copy Editors Society's Education Fund.

The top winner will receive the $2,500 Aubespin scholarship (named for Merv Aubespin, the "godfather" of ACES), and at least four other students will get $1,000 awards. All winners will be given free registration to the 2010 ACES conference next April in Philadelphia.

The 2009 winners are pictured above.

Applications and supporting materials must be postmarked by Nov. 15. For more details, see the ACES Web site.
