About this Event

****Come celebrate student journalism with your favorite campus newsmagazine! Join us at 6:30pm on Saturday, February 15 for a night of music, dancing, dinner catered by Falafel Inc, a professional speaker, and a whole lot of fun. And while you're at it, contribute to a worthwhile cause. Students, alumni, faculty and staff, local journalists, and members of the Georgetown community are welcome!****

Throughout our 50th anniversary year, we have given a lot of thought to how we can best make a lasting impact for student journalists on Georgetown's campus. Journalism is a financially exclusive field, as many entry level positions are unpaid, and it is very difficult to enter the field without undergraduate internship experience. Journalism minors at Georgetown are also required to complete an internship in order to obtain their minor. 

The Voice is committed to supporting student journalists and contributing in any way possible to diversifying the field. In pursuit of this goal, our aim is to establish The Steve Pisinski Student Journalism Grant. This grant, named after the founder of the Voice, will assist students seeking unpaid journalism internships by providing stipends. These stipends will ideally encourage and enable students to pursue internships they may not otherwise have been able to apply for due to the significant financial burden they pose. This grant will be managed in partnership with the journalism program, but applications will be open to all Georgetown students, not just those in the Voice or the journalism program. All proceeds from this event will go to the creation of this fund.

Accommodation requests related to a disability should be made by February 8th to Sienna Brancato at srb111@georgetown.edu. Event organizers will consider and make reasonable efforts to fulfill requests made after February 8th.
