Save the date: July 11-15, July 17-21, 2022

With classes back in full swing on the IU-Bloomington campus, we are feeling excited about the prospect of getting back to in-person workshops for summer 2022.

We plan to continue our tradition of offering an assortment of media-related workshops for high school students and advisers. A complete list of workshops will be available on our website by Jan. 31.

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:

We are still in the planning stages, but will announce fees as soon as possible. Workshop fees in 2019, which is the last time we were able to offer an in-person summer program, were $425.

Refund policy:

Refunds will be given if notified by the deadline.

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. Please complete application by May 13.

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. Please complete application by May 13.


To register for a workshop, complete the appropriate registration form below. Once you submit the form, you’ll be directed to a payment form. Both forms must be complete before your space is reserved. You may pay immediately with a credit card, choose to pay later by mailing in a check, or to pay with a school purchase order (you will need the PO# to enter on the form).
