2018 COMPASS Summer Fellows Head to Washington D.C.

This week, eight doctoral students in Communication will begin summer fellowships with government and policy organizations, thanks to the Consortium on Media Policy Studies (COMPASS).

For more than a decade, this consortium of Communication doctoral programs has sponsored a select group of Ph.D. students to spend a summer in Washington, D.C. These COMPASS Summer Fellows have a front row seat to learn about U.S. federal policymaking as they make their own contributions to the policy process through their research and writing.
