It's Easy to Apply to the Media Fellows Program!
In order to be considered for the Media Fellows Program, you must complete a special application essay question in addition to your regular application to DePauw.
Decisions on admission to the Media Fellows program are made based on the quality of your application essay and a personal interview with members of the faculty governing board for Media Fellows. These interviews are particularly important and will be scheduled on request or in the spring after all written applications are received. Because the program admits a limited number of students per class, admission is very competitive.
