Its all around a great learning experience and if you make it [to Media Scholars Week], you get to meet people that you never thought that you would meet this early on in your career.

The Washington Media Scholars program was a fantastic opportunity for me. Just working on the actual case allowed me to experience a section of political campaigns and media research that I had not really been aware of. I developed skills that were above and beyond what my academic experience had provided me with.

The Washington Media Scholars Program is a great chance for students to combine theory with practice. For students to get access to some of the best minds in the business is simply an incredible opportunity.
