World Affairs Podcast Program

Keck Center World Affairs Podcast Program

We are excited to invite pairs of students to conduct research on a region or a theme in world affairs and develop three podcast episodes. Students selected for this fellowship will receive $1,000 disbursed in two payments. Under the supervision of Prof. Terril Jones, student teams will develop and post podcast episodes once a month (we instruct how to post to Spotify, but you may post to Apple Podcasts or another public platform). No previous experience in podcasting is required. The Keck Center will also post the podcasts on its website (https://www.cmckeckcenter.org/world-affairs-podcast-program). Students must commit to attend group training sessions with Prof. Jones on podcast development on five Friday mornings (time TBA, at 10 a.m.). First-year students are encouraged to apply. Preference will go to students who have not received support from the Keck Center in 2022. The final podcast is due Monday, May 1. Please consider if your schedule allows you to attend the training sessions and to meet the deadlines, and that your topic is specific and feasible. The first payment will be after teams post the first episode; the second after teams complete all three podcasts. You may direct any questions to Terril Jones at tjones@cmc.edu.

Submit the application form to: keckcenter@cmc.edu and tjones@cmc.edu
