Paid summer internships @ NPR

The NPR Internship Program is designed to provide students and recent graduates with an opportunity to learn about broadcasting and the supporting areas of NPR. NPR offers internships at its national headquarters in Washington, D.C., and at our NPR West office in Culver City, CA (all internships are located in Washington, DC unless noted otherwise beneath the title of the internship).

Eligibility: A candidate must be a graduate student, an undergraduate student, or have graduated from college within twelve months of beginning the internship. Internship applicants must be authorized to work in the United States.

General Information:  Interns are expected to work full time, 40 hours per week during the 10-week summer semester. Summer internships offer a stipend of $8.25 per hour.

Application Procedures: Candidates must complete an internship application form (you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print this file) and submit it with a cover letter and resume. Some internship positions require additional application items, such as a writing sample. All application items must be submitted as a complete package. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Application Deadlines: For the summer program, applications must be postmarked by February 15.

Please note: Due to the large volume of applications, we are unable to notify applicants who are not selected for internships.
