Bright minds thrive together
Every year, The Media School identifies its top incoming journalism students and provides them with enhanced resources to ensure they’ll reach their full potential: faculty mentorship, advanced coursework, and travel and professional development opportunities. We call this group the Ernie Pyle Scholars.
Since the program’s inception in 2006, Ernie Pyle Scholars have distinguished themselves as leaders of campus media organizations and members of academic honor societies. Program alumni work at top media organizations including The Washington Post, NPR, Facebook, CBS's “60 Minutes” and Forbes, and international public relations firms in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
