Paid journalism internships for Spring & Summer

The Institute for Humane Studies offers paid journalism internships for talented writers who support individual liberty, free markets, and peace. Internship hosts include newspapers, media networks, new media firms, and nonprofit, investigative newsrooms. Spring and summer internships are available. They provide an internship placement, $3,200 stipend and travel assistance.

Past hosts have included Fox Business News, the Daily Caller, CalWatchdog, and the DC Examiner. Applicants are matched with a news organization based on the applicant’s interest and skills and the needs of the organization. Applicants may also secure their own unpaid internship and apply to our program for funding.

During the program, interns learn essential reporting skills so they can publish and break quality stories about compelling issues. Editors help interns identify sources and ask the right questions. Interns end the program with a portfolio of clips and an extensive professional network.

The internship program provides a stipend and travel allowance. Plus all interns attend a weeklong workshop during the summer, where journalists share career stories and advice, and professors explain policy analysis tips, working with statistics, and the origins of freedom of the press. During and after the internship, the program director helps interns navigate a job search.

Ideal candidates are excellent writers interested in advancing liberty through stories about wasteful government programs, restrictions on civil liberties, collusion between government and business, and other topics. Advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates of all majors, including political science and economics, are encouraged to apply.
