Summer Undergraduate Digital Media Fellowship

The Summer Undergraduate Digital Media Fellowship program is a new full-time summer fellowship program for Mercer undergraduates.

Fellows will have the opportunity to work in a variety of mediums as they generate digital content for the Research that Reaches Out office and the upcoming Center for Engaged Learning. Content will include videos, podcasts, articles, or graphics. In addition to generating approximately one media product per week, fellows will design and complete an independent fellowship project over the course of the summer that aligns their personal/professional goals with the mission of the Research that Reaches Out office.
