Deadline Oct. 12: IRE Campus Coverage Project Workshop
IRE, in partnership with Education Writers Association and the Student Press Law Center, is launching a program to share investigative reporting skills with college and university students that they can apply to covering campus issues.
Seventy-five students from around the country will be selected to participate in our Campus Coverage Project.
The centerpiece is a national workshop from Jan. 7-10, 2010, being held at Arizona State University in Phoenix. Sessions at the workshop will focus on specific campus-coverage issues and overall reporting techniques and skills. Travel and lodging expenses will be covered. Additional training opportunities will be provided throughout the year.
We're asking your help in getting the word out to qualified students (those with experience reporting for campus-related news outlets who have at least one year of coursework remaining). Attached is a flier that we hope you can post and distribute. Students can apply online; the deadline is Oct. 12.
