We plan to continue our tradition of offering an assortment of media-related workshops for high school students and advisers. A list of workshops can be found here. Complete the form at the link below to receive info about summer.

Connect with us

We hope you’ll join us for a summer of endless opportunities: a chance to connect with journalism professionals, other student journalists and award-winning advisers, including HSJI and Indiana University alumni.

Most days at the High School Journalism Institute will include small-group classes, individualized instruction, large-group lectures and evening activities so you can meet others who share your passion for journalism.

We hope you will join us in July for a summer experience that will last a lifetime.

Costs and deadlines:

The fee for a 5-day workshop is $490. This fee includes instruction, lodging, supervision and a $110 meal card. At the campus eatery HSJI students will use, meals are all-you-care-to-eat, not à la carte. Students who plan to eat every meal at an on-campus eatery should purchase an additional $50 meal card when completing the online payment form. Most students prefer to bring their personal debit/credit card to supplement their $110 meal card, giving them flexibility.  Learn more about the meal options here.

Refund policy:

Full refunds of Institute fees, less a $60 non- refundable processing charge, will be made if we are notified of a cancellation at least two weeks in advance of the workshop’s beginning. Seventy-five percent refunds (less processing charge) will be made if notified of a cancellation at least one week in advance of a workshop’s start, and 50 percent refunds (less processing charge) will be made once the workshop begins if we are notified of a cancellation by the first day of the session. After the first day, no refunds will be made.

Funding available to attend:

Multicultural grants for students: Covers the full registration fee for eligible students. Both the High School Journalism Institute and Indiana University define “multicultural” as people of different cultures, languages, ethnicities, races, religions, socioeconomic status or gender. Students who will be the first generation in their families to attend college are also welcome to apply. (Deadline: April 28)

Kemp grants for teachers: The grants are intended for teachers who currently have journalism/media teaching or advising responsibilities or who are preparing for those responsibilities. Teachers who receive a grant and successfully complete the practicum will be reimbursed $350 for those who chose to stay in on-campus housing and $250 for commuters. Apply here.

Registration: (Registration is closed for 2023.)
