PRINCETON, N.J. — Media organizations are invited to hire Dow Jones News Fund interns in business reporting, data journalism, digital media and multiplatform editing.
DJNF interns receive specialized training in residential programs at leading journalism schools before reporting to work for 10 to 12 weeks for summer 2018. The News Fund has helped prepare thousand of students for distinguished professional careers over six decades.
For the third consecutive year, Investigative Reporters and Editors will train data journalism interns for a week. Students will learn to unearth and analyze data to tell important stories.
Digital media interns will produce a compelling multimedia project during their training at Arizona State University. This summer’s Ripple Effect Phoenix covered child drownings.
“We’re excited about the innovative training interns will receive,” said Linda Shockley, managing director of the Dow Jones News Fund. “We draw applicants from a rich, diverse talent pool at journalism schools and liberal arts colleges across the nation.”
College juniors, seniors and graduate students can apply until Nov. 1 through the Fund’s website. All applicants must take a test on their campus designed for the internship program for which they are applying. A panel of professionals and educators will select the winners in December. Internships start immediately after training.
Our 2017 partners included varied media outlets from websites, television and radio stations to nonprofit journalism organizations and print media, including BuzzFeed, Hawaii News Now, Southern California Public Radio, the Center for Public Integrity, Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
Media organizations must pay the News Fund $1,200 to underwrite training and agree to pay interns at least $400 per week. They can sign up online.
