Sponsor Me, MIPA’s online pledge system, makes it easy to help students attend MIPA’s Summer Journalism Workshop – a annual educational program for middle and high school students at Michigan State University. Our online system allows students to create their own profiles so that raise money from people they know.

Our students spend five days on campus working with some of the best instructors in the country to improve their writing, design, reporting, photography and leadership skills. We produce the best student journalists in the region – and beyond. Our practical, hands-on program also provides students with the skills they need for college and beyond – regardless of whether they become professional journalists.

For many students, this may be their first experience visiting a four-year college and getting a taste of campus life. MIPA works closely with programs and activities across MSU, including the School of Journalism, to connect students with a variety of college opportunities. MSU can be a big place. But since we spend all year here, we know our way around and help our students navigate campus during the week – and beyond if they ultimately become Spartans.
