2011-12 Bridge Grant Recipients

Building a Bridge Between the Knight News Challenge and JMC Programs

Through a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, AEJMC has funded ten proposals to develop innovative and creative academic applications of projects already funded through the Knight News Challenge.  The goal is to implement these projects in ways that enhance the education of future journalists for the new media landscape.  Individual grants are up to $8,000 each.
