IRE Student Sponsorship Program

IRE is committed to developing the next generation of investigative reporters by introducing more students to the organization.

To do this, we need your help.

Please consider sponsoring a $25 student membership on behalf of your alma mater, college media or for an intern at your news organization. You don’t have to know a current student, we’ll take care of that. Unless you prefer to remain anonymous, your name and the institution receiving the membership will be listed on IRE’s Web site.

 

how to become a sponsor

 

You can sponsor a student membership in two ways:

1. If you know a specific student you’d like to sponsor, click here to purchase the membership. The student will receive an email that you have sponsored their membership for one year. If they already have an active membership, it will be extended for another year. Click the button below for Individual Student Memberships:


 

2. If you don’t know a specific student but would like to donate a membership to your alma mater, college newspaper, TV or radio station, click here. IRE will work with J-school officials on campus to find a student match and they will receive an email that you have sponsored their membership for one year.

If you happen to know of a professor, adviser or student editor at your chosen organization, you can list their name and email on the form. This would be much appreciated, but is not necessary.  (Click the button below for Alma Mater, College Newspaper, University or Multi Memberships:
