Chuck Stone Program for Diversity in Education and Media 2018

The 2018 Chuck Stone Program for Diversity in Education and Media will be held July 8-12. Aspiring high school journalists who will be seniors in the 2018-19 school year are encouraged to apply.

The application materials must be received by March 15, 2018.

The Chuck Stone Program welcomes students of varying diversity, including but not limited to religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and gender. The 12 students accepted to the one-week program will learn from classroom study, real-world reporting, newsroom practice and professional mentors. The workshop will consist of 50 hours of multi-platform storytelling and writing in which the participants work together to make a multimedia publication called The Mix.

The first workshop was held for rising high school seniors in 2007. The program honors the legacy of professor Charles ‘Chuck’ Sumner Stone Jr., who retired from the school in 2005.
