This program is open to students who are doing a study abroad program and recent graduates.
The program matches interns with print, broadcast, or online media outlets based on their interests and experience. Interns spend an average of 30 hours per week gaining practical, hands-on journalism experience. Potential placements include the Washington Times, the Washington Examiner, C-SPAN, Fox News, and more.
Interns will attend the NJC seminar one day a week, sharpening their writing and reporting skills and gaining a better understanding of media, society, and public policy, and the intersection between the three in Washington, D.C. and nationwide.
Internships are offered during both spring and summer. The spring dates for 2018 are January 22 through April 13, and applications are due by November 26.
