California Student Press Corps | EdSource

EdSource California Student Journalism Corps seeks to nurture and support promising journalism students in California while enhancing EdSource’s ability to report in depth on issues at the state level that affect colleges and universities, as well as the communities around them. Our network of student journalists report on California education and gain real professional experience by contributing to EdSource, which operates the state’s largest education reporter newsroom. (See reports contributed by our corps here.)

Panelists develop their skills and prepare for the job market and life after college by working with some of the most experienced California education reporters at EdSource, which has emerged as a model for nonprofit journalism. The California Student Journalism Team welcomes a new cohort of student journalism at the start of the fall, spring and summer semesters. If you are an undergraduate student interested in joining the program, please send your resume and cover letter to [email protected]

Our thanks to college future foundation for their support of this initiative.
