Paid D.C. media internships for fall & spring

The National Journalism Center will offer 10 to 15 paid journalism internships this fall and spring in Washington, D.C. The fall program runs from Aug. 25 to Nov. 16; the spring program is from Feb. 2 to April 24.

Interns receive a $1,000 monthly stipend and spend 12 weeks working at newspapers, magazines, websites, and TV and radio stations. They also are provided with training, meet with prominent journalists and participate in discussions.

Students can take their internships for credit, as well as take the training seminar as an independent study course.

Rising juniors, seniors, recent graduates and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Applicants are not required to be journalism majors; however, it is preferred to have some exposure/training to journalism and communications.

The application deadline is July 1 for the fall program and Nov. 30 for the spring program. Students should apply ASAP as acceptance decisions are made on a rolling basis.
