Fellowship & Research
Research Opportunities at CSIC
Students in the Journalism program have the opportunity to partake in research projects at select points during the year, where they can delve deeper into an area of study related to the journalism and media industry.
These projects are offered through Georgetown University’s Center for Social Impact Communication (CSIC), the nation’s leading educational resource on the role of communication in fostering social change. Launched in 2008, CSIC’s mission is to elevate the discipline by pioneering industry standards in responsible communication practices and by educating and inspiring professionals of all levels to lead the way in creating positive social impact around the world through their work.
In addition to research, CSIC offers a variety of engagement opportunities for students such as writing projects and special events on social impact topics.

Association of Alternative Newsmedia Fellowships
For some of its fellowships, the Journalism program also partners with the Association of Alternative Newsmedia, which represents 117 alternative news outlets in North America and works “to strengthen alternative journalism through advocacy and education.” Through these fellowships, students have conducted interviews with journalism thought leaders, researched cutting-edge mobile and business products, and used their findings to create compelling multimedia projects.
