Welcome

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 list of workshops can be found here.

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 workshop fee for a 5-day workshop is $425. This fee includes instruction, lodging, supervision and a $50 meal card. Meals for the week will cost approximately $150, depending on where you choose to eat. If you plan to eat most meals in the on-campus dining hall you may purchase additional $50 meal cards when you complete the online payment form. Most students prefer to bring their personal debit/credit card or cash to supplement their $50 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. 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.
