Jim VandeHei, executive editor and co-founder of Poltitico, answers student questions during the 2009 IPJ Conference.

In addition to its summer journalism Institute, The Fund for American Studies reaches out to even more young journalists throughout the year by hosting regional conferences for students.

The conferences teach aspiring journalists about the core values of honest reporting. Sessions on ethics, economics and reporting techniques with industry leaders give students insight into the economic and political issues that will allow them to write informed stories.
