The News Fund places talented college juniors, seniors and graduate students in well-respected newsrooms as paid interns. We seek college professors and career services faculty to promote the internship programs on campus. Many interns say they initially heard about the Fund’s programs from a college professor, making our campus contacts a critical connection. For 2022 internships, we are not asking professors to serve as test monitors. The online test will be distributed by DJNF staff to applicants.
Fund interns receive one-week of pre-internship training at one of its residency programs. Colleges can apply to serve as the residency site for the digital media, data journalism, business reporting or multiplatform editing. Deadline for proposals is Oct. 1.
DJNF provides a week of subject-specific training for students selected for each of its college internship programs. If you are interested in hosting and directing an internship residency, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
