Overview

The Dow Jones News Fund college internship programs help juniors, seniors and graduate students jump-start careers in journalism through hands-on internships with leading news organizations. Interns receive one week of rigorous pre-internship training, a weekly salary during the internship and a $1,500 scholarship for students and graduates with federal loans.

Interns are chosen based on their résumés, experience, performance on DJNF tests, telephone interviews, 500-word essays and the needs of media outlets. Internships are offered in:

Audience Engagement
Multiplatform Editing
Data Journalism
Digital Media
Business Reporting

Heather Taylor, manager of digital media and programs at the Dow Jones News Fund, will walk you through the application process and offer tips on writing a competitive application.

We'll also discuss internships at KQED, Politico, American Society of Magazine Editors and other media employers.
