CSIS Journalism Bootcamp

Welcome to the CSIS Journalism Bootcamp, an initiative that connects rising journalists with policy experts and multimedia producers to tell pressing stories from around the globe. Each year, four universities are invited to bring a select group of students to the nation’s capital to complete an intensive week of workshops that allow them to gain a meaningful understanding of global issues and the nuances of international reporting in an evolving media landscape.

What are they saying?

“Throughout the course of this week, I found myself realizing, bit by bit, that a positive work environment, filled with passionate people who are extremely knowledgeable, is absolutely crucial to success. I hope to create such collaborative environments at my school and wherever I end up in life (maybe…hopefully?…at CSIS!).”

“One big thing I learned from this practicum is that infographics and data visualizations should have a functional purpose and serve the words. For a piece to simply look pretty won’t help you deliver your message to audiences.”
