The Student Services committee organizes scholarships, updates fellowship opportunities for college members and  runs the FIRST TAKE Journalism Workshop.

The committee is currently looking for enthusiastic professionals to mentor ambitious teens.


Help high school students get a jumpstart on a great career by joining FIRST TAKE. We teach cutting edge multimedia skills plus tried and true reporting fundamentals. Your professional guidance helps them immeasurably in such a fast-changing industry.
