The Communication Fellows Program

In 2018, the Ohio University Scripps College of Communication launched the Communication Fellows Program. Focusing on curriculum development in communication across PK-12 levels of instruction, the fellowship offers graduate-level professional development credit, project support and generous stipends. We seek to increase interaction and collaboration between PK-12 faculty and higher education faculty who share mutual interests in communication-related instruction.

We define communication broadly to include but not be limited to:

  • Social media use and consequences
  • Use of communication technology in classrooms by students
  • Teaching approaches to using communication technology
  • The Internet of Things
  • Audio podcasting
  • Digital video creation and editing
  • Journalism
  • Photography
  • Digital design
  • Public speaking
  • Health communication
  • The structure of the internet
  • Information/news literacy
  • And much more 

Up to 10 fellows will be named each year, representative of rural Appalachian districts and urban districts in the state of Ohio.
