Applications now accepted for 2019 summer institute

High school students interested in getting a jump on next summer may now apply for the 2019 Pre-College Summer Journalism Institute at Boston University, sponsored by the New England Center for Investigative Reporting.

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the 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.
