I am pleased to announce that the dean's office is currently accepting applications for a project designed for students interested in a career in journalism – the Liberal Arts Student Reporter Project.
This project is an opportunity for students to work with veteran reporter Dale Rice in producing feature stories that will be published in an online news journal as well as sent to the university news office for possible pitches to the mainstream media.
Students will earn $50 per story and be required to produce one story a month for three months during the fall semester.
Application deadline for the fall 2008 semester is Aug. 29th.
Students can read all about the project and apply at http://clla.tamu.edu/
