Walton D. Clarke Fellow

The Walton D. Clarke Fellowship honors WKSU's founder and first General Manager, Walton D. Clarke.  The fellowship is a collaboration between Kent State's School of Journalism and Mass Communication and WKSU to provide an intensive real-world experience in radio production and reporting to a graduate student. The Walt Clarke fellowship is funded in part by generous contributors to a special endowment fund that provides a stipend to the selected student.
