By giving to the School, you help students by:
- Helping students participate in national competitions through student group activities
- Offsetting the costs of producing high-quality journalism and strategic communication training
- Supporting high-quality events, research and learning opportunities
- Providing emergency scholarships for students in need
- Enhancing a targeted fund, like the library, a scholarship or other opportunities
How to Join the Director’s Circle
We offer annual recognition at giving levels designed to meet your interests and giving capacity. Those levels include:

Recognition is based on total gifts, pledges and matching gifts contributed to the School in a single fiscal year (July 1-June 30). Couples are recognized for the combined total of their household contributions.
The Dave and Julie Lee scholarship helped me immensely. I spent a lot of time stressing out about money, especially with a job in journalism. It was comforting to have a little snippet of a security blanket so I didn’t have to worry about paying all that money back through loans. I met Dave and Julie, and they’re both absolutely wonderful people. It was great to talk to them and hear Dave’s story about how he got into journalism, which helped me understand my industry more.”
