News Fund Workshops

The Dow Jones News Fund supports summer workshops to inspire high school students who face barriers to pursuing a career in journalism to consider working in the field. Significant support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation provides the bulk of funding for aspiring journalists to concentrate on health and wellness topics as they learn to report and write for an audience, shoot and edit video and take photos. Interested in receiving funding for a 2020 summer workshop? Email heather.taylor@dowjones.com for more information. Since 1968, the News Fund has joined other sponsors to introduce more than 12,000 high school students to journalism careers and provided valuable hands-on experience publishing in print and digitally. These workshops add value beyond the newsroom, exposing students to campus life, thinking critically and working collaboratively. Click here to see work produced during 2019 workshops.
