About the Application Process

The application is meant to inform us of students’ civic interests, knowledge about the media, and desire to learn. Students do not need to have any prior video or journalistic experience.

One of the most important parts of the application are the Instructor and Peer Recommendations. Students should choose three people (professors, employers, or otherwise) who can best speak about their abilities and passions. Students are also welcome to submit video applications as a supplement to, or instead of written essays.


Applications are due Friday, April 6, 2018 and are accepted on a rolling basis. We conduct interviews for each potential attendee. For students residing outside the immediate area, interviews will be conducted via Skype.
