Adam Kuban, journalism – $2,250
Indiana Campus Compact, four-month grant starting Jan. 1, 2016

This grant will fund printing of “Facing Cancer in East Central Indiana,” a collection of stories and photographs by roughly 20 students either in journalism’s Louis E. Ingelhart Scholars program or in communication studies. Each writer will interview one person who’s facing or has faced cancer, then create a first-person story from that subject’s experience. Others will tell stories through photos or videos.

The book will be given away during a community reading of stories March 19 at Muncie Civic Theatre. Remaining copies will go to Cancer Services of East Central Indiana-Little Red Door and other entities helping those facing cancer.
