Learn more about your impact

Every summer, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication brings high school students from underserved backgrounds to ASU for hands-on experiences in broadcast and digital media. A gift to the Cronkite Summer Journalism Institute supports the costs of participants' room and board and meals, camp counselors, transportation for field trips, program faculty, equipment and lab usage, and supplies and materials.

My favorite part was meeting the amazing professionals, getting the hands-on experience in doing multiple positions, and learning more deeply about journalism."
