About the Program

Founded in 1981, the Donald W. Carson Journalism Diversity Workshop gives Arizona high school students an opportunity to learn about reporting, photography, multimedia and media ethics each summer. During the week-long program, students produce stories and photos for The Chronicle newspaper, websites and multimedia projects. 

The program, usually held during the first week in June, is sponsored primarily by the Dow Jones News Fund and the University of Arizona Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement.
