$500/wk spring journalism internship in D.C.

The Chronicle of Higher Education seeks four reporting interns from January to May 2009. The full-time internships are in the Washington, D.C. office and pay a $500 weekly stipend.

The Chronicle reports on news concerning colleges and universities. Its website gets 12 million page views per month and its newspaper has 350,000 readers.

Four interns will be hired; two spots will be reserved for undergraduates. Academic credit can also be arranged. Applications must be received by 4 p.m. on Friday, October 3, 2008.

"The interns' primary responsibilities are reporting and writing daily news articles for The Chronicle's Web site (which usually appear subsequently in print), contributing brief features to the "Short Subjects" section, writing news articles for other sections of the newspaper, and doing research for special projects," according to the ad. "There is very little grunt work. Interns who prove themselves as reporters and writers are often asked to write full-length features."
