Discover the Unexpected Fellowship AUC Launch
Six talented Atlanta University Center students received $15,000 each in General Motors Discover the Unexpected journalism fellowship program. On Thursday, April 13, 2017, Jordan Fisher and Tiana Hunt from Clark Atlanta University; Ayron Lewallen and Darrell Williams from Morehouse College; and Taylor Burris and Kelsey Jones from Spelman College were selected to receive the $10,000 scholarships and $5,000 stipends from a pool of 57 of their classmates.

Hosted by hip-hop legend MC Lyte, the DTU program was established as a journalism fellowship program through the National Newspaper Publishers Association and is sponsored by Chevrolet.

It provides an opportunity for aspiring historically black colleges and university journalists to receive real-world experience and mentoring on their journey to becoming the next generation of black journalists.
