The deadline approaches for ELi’s first Summer Youth Journalism Program, a two-week program happening in August. Accepted applicants aged 14-22 will be given a $250 stipend for participation and will also be paid for published reporting.
ELi's two-week-long Summer Youth Journalism Program still has a small number of spots open, and so we have extended the application deadline for people aged 14-22. Meanwhile, from you old people, we are looking for lunch money for the kids.
The Lansing Area Community Trust has awarded ELi a $3600 grant to support our Summer Youth Journalism Program! Applications for the program are now being accepted from people in the 14-22 year age group.
As we come to the end of our third fiscal year, East Lansing now has what we think no other community in America does: a fully-functional, sustainable, nonpartisan, nonprofit, citizen-reported public news service.
