Hubert H Humphrey Fellowship Program (Year 11)

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications proposal to continue hosting the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows in the Field of Communications and
Journalism draws on all weve learned in 10 successful years of administering the program. Our track record is strong: We have provided rich academic, professional and cultural experiences for 102 Fellows from 58 nations, building a vibrant network
connecting the Fellows to Cronkite, ASU, U.S. embassies in their home countries and
each other long after their 10 months with us is over. Feedback from Fellows gives us the confidence to say that the program exceeds expectations. That same confidence allows us to embrace new possibilities for engaging Fellows in thinking about the challenges facing journalism and professional communication as we enter the 21st centurys third decade a time when the very definition of these fields is being reconsidered.

Our expanding teaching and research capacities in digital literacy, emerging
media technology, leadership development and investigative journalism mean we can
offer new learning opportunities to the Fellows, including adding a course of study
tailored to each cohort on audience development and emerging digital tools. We will build on our record of creating an experience that changes the way Fellows think about their work, nurtures lifelong professional relationships and promotes understanding of the ways we are all connected in this digital information age. As a reflection of the importance of the Humphrey Fellows program to ASU, the university pledges to cover the full cost of international tuition for the Fellows, more than doubling our financial commitment to the program.
