About

The CSIS Journalism Bootcamp aims to provide aspiring journalists with a practical experience in Washington, D.C. centered around multimedia reporting on international affairs in a volatile media landscape.

During the week-long bootcamp, journalism and international relations students work with CSIS’s award-winning production studio, the iDeas Lab, its expert scholars, and a network of prominent practitioners to report on timely issues and acquire new skills that allow them to diversify their storytelling.

CSIS welcomes a new school to participate each quarter, and works closely with faculty advisers to ensure the program simultaneously complements their area of study. While most participants are graduate students, some exceptions for upper-division undergraduates are made.
