The application for the Schieffer Summer Journalism Camp is now open.
In this two week residential program housed on the Fort Worth campus, TCU faculty introduce high school students to the fundamentals of digital reporting.
Students develop their critical thinking and writing skills while generating story ideas, which they then report and develop into news stories. They find sources on campus, perhaps at peer camps taking place at TCU or university departments such as the office of admission or the library. They produce content for a newscast and write for a website.
Media professionals from Fort Worth and Dallas volunteer their time and come in to share their expertise and experiences with students. They talk about changes in media and discuss media careers with students.
While in Fort Worth, students get to experience cultural attractions such as the Trinity Shakespeare Festival and the museum district. They also visit professional newsrooms.
