High school journalism camp @ Yale

Connecticut high school students can apply for a free week-long summer journalism program at Yale University in New Haven, Conn.

The Yale Daily News Summer Journalism Program is run entirely by undergraduate staff members of the Yale Daily News. During the week, high school students participate in workshops on the fundamentals of reporting and writing, attend lectures by guest speakers from major national publications, and work hands-on reporting a story. The week culminates with the production of an issue of the Yale Daily News.

The free program is limited to Connecticut residents and is geared toward those with writing or journalism experience, but any Connecticut high school student with an interest in journalism, writing or photography may apply. The program will be held August 17 through August 22, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day. There is no housing available in New Haven, and students are expected to return home each evening.

Applications are due in mid-May. For questions, e-mail Bharat Ayyar at or call Editor-in-Chief Andrew Mangino at (973) 432-2765. To apply, click here.
