POSTPONED – Applications open for 2020 multimedia training academy for Hispanic-Serving Institution college faculty and students
Due to safety concerns and travel limitations related to the coronavirus pandemic, the Dow Jones Multimedia Training Academy in El Paso is being postponed. We are considering options for later in the summer. The dates are still TBD as we monitor the situation. Borderzine is now accepting applications from college journalism instructors and students for full scholarships to attend its 11th annual Dow Jones News Fund Multimedia Training Academy at the University of Texas at El Paso from May 29 to June 4. The workshop has trained more than 100 educators from Hispanic-serving institutions who brought back digital reporting skills to their classrooms. This year the program is expanding to include some college students as well as previous faculty participants who are interested in working on next-level skills. In an effort to encourage more schools to cultivate students for the Dow Jones News Fund College Internship Program, previous Multimedia Training Academy attendees are welcome to apply if their institutions have had students accepted into the internship program.
