Senior Terrence Lambert is one of two Indiana undergraduate college journalism students chosen for the 2021 Indianapolis Press Club Foundation summer fellowship. The 10-week fellowships pay $6,000 each.
Lambert will work at the Indianapolis Recorder newspaper this summer.
“I was really excited when I found out that I landed this fellowship,” he said. “The excitement was also mixed with nervousness because I will be joining the newsroom of a pretty popular Indianapolis publication.”
“I am looking forward to getting firsthand experience in the newsroom and understanding the process — from pitching story ideas, getting a hold of sources, conducting interviews, and seeing stories go from a simple idea to being published.”
Lambert’s primary goal for the summer is to publish stories that are well-received by the readers.
“I want to be proud of the work I produce,” he said.
Lambert plans to graduate in August 2021, and is currently finishing up a year-long internship with IUPUI as a social media content intern.
