Princeton summer camp exposes students to real world of journalism

 

Cleveland high school students interested in journalism have the chance of a lifetime to spend 10 days at Princeton University this summer.

 

Now in its 11th year, the all-expense-paid summer program will give more than 200 high school students from across the country exposure to top journalists. Seasoned journalists from prominent newspapers such as “The New York Times,” “The Washington Post” and “The Miami Herald” will facilitate the summer camp.

 

During the program, campers get real-world experience. In previous years, student journalists covered professional baseball games, held a press conference with New Jersey’s secretary of state, met with Princeton’s president and published their own newspaper.

 

In addition to the hands-on training, the students will receive counseling from Princeton alumni and undergraduates on the college application process.

 

To be eligible for the program, students must be current high school juniors, have at least a 3.5 grade point average and show an interest in journalism. The combined income of their custodial parents or custodial guardians, plus child support payments if any, must not exceed $45,000.

This program is geared toward low-income students. If an interested student’s family income exceeds $45,000, the student may attach a letter explaining why his or her family qualifies due to other financial restraints.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2012. No extensions will be given for any reason. All applications must be sent online via this website: https://fs4.formsite.com/pusjp/form1/secure_index.html.


Princeton program directors will then interview finalists in person or over the phone. Finalists will be asked to provide printed copies of the following via U.S. mail:

 

  • an official transcript

  • the first page of their parents or guardians’ 2009 (or 2010, if available) income-tax return form (1040 or 1040EZ), or a signed statement by their parents or guardians stating their income is below the level at which they would be required to file income tax returns

  • a recommendation letter from a teacher

  • clips from their high school newspapers or other publications
