Paid summer internships @ New York newspapers

Up to 13 paid journalism internships are available at New York state newspapers this summer through the the New York Press Association. High school seniors and college students are eligible.

To apply, students must fill out an application and submit it directly to the newspaper(s) of their choice. Once the newspapers have received any applications, they will decide among those collected which one is the best fit for them, then submit it for consideration to NYPA’s headquarters by mail or fax.

The applications need to be into the newspapers by March 1, 2011. Local newspapers will select one candidate from the applications received and will forward their candidate of choice to NYPA no later than Friday, March 4, 2011. Anyone who is currently, or will be enrolled, in a recognized program of undergraduate study is eligible to compete for an eight-week internship with a net $2,500 stipend offered by NYPA. Applicants must attend college during the 2011-2012 academic year.

The final 13 winners of this internship opportunity will be chosen by the NYPA Foundation Board of Directors, and interns will be notified by the end of March 2011. Students who are family members are not eligible to earn a paid internship with a newspaper(s) owned or operated by a relative(s). However, these same students are encouraged to submit applications to other non-family owned/operated newspapers within New York State. No newspaper can receive more than one NYPA-sponsored intern.

Contact Rich at NYPA (518) 464-6483 or by email at rhotaling@nynewspapers.com if you have any questions.
