DEADLINE: High School Summer Journalism Institute at Boston University

Event Date: 
June 12, 2019

Based at Boston University, the New England Center for Investigative Reporting’s Summer Journalism Institute gives students ages 14 to 18 the opportunity to expand their skills, experience college life and explore Boston.

Each instructor is also a working journalist, so what’s taught is grounded in real-life experience. Each lesson is tied to its practical application, by giving students reporting assignments on campus and in the city. Each day is an opportunity to taste what’s it like to work in the news field, live on a campus and make new friends from all over the country.

Session 1: June 24 to July 5, 2019 (sold out)

Session 2: July 8 to July 19, 2019 (deadline extended to June 12)

Session 3: July 22 to Aug. 2, 2019 (sold out)
