Culpepper Journalism Foundation
The vision of the CJF is to promote excellence in scholastic journalism for students in South Florida. The mission is to provide educational and financial assistance to high school underclassmen so they can attend summer journalism programs at universities. The CJF provides "fellowships" and not scholarships because the winners must return to their high school staffs the next year and be mentors to their classmates.
Looking for a 2023 Summer Program?
Due to the health pandemic, for several years online, virtual programs were the norm because very few universities offered on-campus programs. However, for the summer of 2023 CJF Fellowships will be only for in-person summer programs. Students can research current college journalism programs for high school students. The UF Summer Media Institute is one option: https://www.jou.ufl.edu/summermediainstitute/. Perhaps you have relatives in a different state. Search to see other programs that are being offered and apply. The Dow Jones Newspaper Fund lists programs it supports: https://dowjonesnewsfund.org/high-school-student-program/directory-of-high-school-workshops/.
Who We Are
The Culpepper Journalism Foundation (CJF) was established in 1997 to honor Dr. Alyce Culpepper upon her retirement from Broward County Public Schools. She always encouraged students to improve their writing, photography and editing skills by attending summer journalism programs at universities. The Sun-Sentinel matched the initial contributions, and all donations go directly to the students because the Culpepper family pays all other expenses.
