Argus Voices Fund
The Argus is completely, and importantly, independent from the University—we receive no University funding, and Argus workers do not receive academic credit. The resulting product benefits every member of the campus community—in addition to our website, 500 copies of The Argus are published each Tuesday and Friday, available to students, prospective students, faculty, staff, and Middletown residents. Thank you so much for your support!

What is the Argus Voices Fund?
The Argus Voices Fund is a program that offers 5 paid reporting positions to students of color from low-income backgrounds to increase the accessibility of student journalism and take active strides toward making our newsroom more representative of the communities we cover. We recognize that our current reporting positions—all of which are unpaid—are only realistic for students from more privileged backgrounds. For students supporting themselves financially through college, working at a student paper with no pay is a considerable hardship that serves as an inherent barrier to accessing journalism opportunities. This largely accounts for the over representation of white reporters in student newsrooms.
