We’re filling spaces — apply, pay and reserve yours!
Mid-March finds us filling spaces as accepted students send us payment and registration packets. It’s an exciting time for us as we read through the applications we get from students who are so curious and committed to the future of journalism around the world.
We’re happy to report that students will be joining us this year from Europe, Asia and the Middle East, as well as Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Hawaii, plus our home base of California.
And while we can’t release names, we can tell you that among those we expect to see at NBTB this summer are a budding photojournalist from Pakistan; a hockey player from Kahului, Hawaii, who covers the Chicago Blackhawks; and a student editor from California’s Central Valley, whose school website “sits in the corner, unused” and who wants to come to Newsroom by the Bay so she can learn how to change that.
“I think that Newsroom by the Bay would inspire me to pursue a career in journalism by exposing me to new techniques that would make my work a lot better,” wrote one accepted student, who is the social media sports editor for his high school in Virginia. “And there are very few summer opportunities that could teach me the things the Newsroom by the Bay will.”
We couldn’t agree more. So if you want to learn by doing (our camp motto!), consider joining us this summer at Stanford.
Apply now, get accepted and pay by April 1, and you will receive our early bird discount.
