About the Program

The Donald W. Carson Journalism Diversity Workshop is a high school summer program held on the University of Arizona campus. Arizona high school students learn about reporting, photography, multimedia and media ethics from seasoned journalists and professors. There is no cost for students to attend this workshop.

The program, usually held in June, is sponsored primarily by the Dow Jones News Fund and the University of Arizona Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement. Students live on campus in dorms and work together in the week-long program to produce stories and photos for The Chronicle newspaper, websites and multimedia projects. 

We encourage all Arizona high school students interested in learning journalism to apply to the workshop. No journalism experience is required.
