Robert Nelson Foundation Fellowship

The Robert Nelson Foundation Fellowship has been created to provide experiential learning opportunities to students in the Journalism, Broadcasting, and Digital Media Program, including mentoring by faculty members and support for students who are undertaking unpaid internships at nonprofit organizations. The opportunity for the students to spend time working at a nonprofit organization is a chance for them to share their emerging skills and expertise with the organization, and at the same time learn the importance of giving back to the community. Mr. Nelson had a vision of helping young people with their education and for sharing the importance of giving back to the community. The Robert Nelson Foundation is honored to be able to provide this unique opportunity for students at GVSU that accomplishes both goals within his vision.
