The NBC/John Carroll University “Meet the Press” Fellowship, created to honor Tim Russert (JCU ’72), is awarded annually to a graduating senior from either The Tim Russert Department of Communication and Theatre Arts or the Department of Political Science at John Carroll University. The student spends nine months at NBC’s “Meet the Press” headquarters working on the production of a weekly program and conducting collaborative research under the direction of the executive producer. The candidate must have a strong interest in political journalism and demonstrated political journalism experience through internships, campus media, or other outlets. A stipend will be provided to the fellow to cover living expenses.
