The White House Correspondents’ Association supported seven graduate students ($2,500 per student) to study in Washington, DC for a semester, as part of the University of Missouri’s well-established program. The University waived the balance of the tuition in return.

Elizabeth Scheltens is a graduate of Kenyon College and the Missouri School of Journalism. She completed her graduate project last summer with the Scripps News Washington Bureau and is now employed as a data reporter at DecodeDC, a project of the Scripps News. She uses data visualizations, animations and other digital tools to tell stories about Washington that go beyond a now familiar “red team, blue team” narrative.
