The USA TODAY Collegiate Correspondent Program is a great way to get experience and clips.

We are proud to announce that for the first time, students can apply to participate in the writing or visual correspondent program.

The Collegiate Correspondent Program is a semester-long program. Content produced by participants in the Collegiate Correspondent Program is published across USA TODAY and Gannett’s digital platforms.

Participants in the writing program will conduct original reporting from the perspective of a college student. Participants in the visual program will produce weekly singles and be responsible for a semester-long multimedia project.

All participants will benefit from Q&A sessions with prominent USA TODAY reporters, editors and photographers.

The application for the fall Collegiate Correspondent Program is currently open and will close on Tuesday, July 22nd.
