The Gusting Campus Journalism Fellowship started in 2004 when the USA Publications was granted by the PIA-6 an exemption from joining COPRE for five years after winning its third Gawad Lopez Jaena for The Augustinian Mirror. It was a regional event where the staff members share their knowledge in campus journalism to fellow writers in the region. A few years after its launching, however, it stopped its operations due to lack of funding and time since the staff members also produce publications regularly.
The event has been revived last 2013 and has been made exclusively for the colleges and departments of the University of San Agustin. Schools under the Order of Saint Augustine in the Philippines are also welcomed to join. On its revival, San Jose Catholic School in Iloilo City also participated.
