Applications are now being accepted from college students nationwide for the 2012 Campus Coverage Project. Apply online at www.ire.org/campus. The deadline for applications is this Friday, Sept. 30.
IRE, in partnership with Education Writers Association and the Student Press Law Center, is launching the third year of a program that shares 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 the program’s first two years students from more than 60 campuses nationwide won scholarships to attend. The centerpiece of this program will be a national workshop from Jan. 5-8, at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in Phoenix.
