Internships & Fellowships

Find great interns or fellows — and get support to pay them

Cultivating a diverse talent pipeline with an emphasis on investigative journalism, audience development and engagement is essential in propelling the nonprofit sector’s ongoing innovation and growth. Each partnership brings interns and fellows with different skills and experiences to the table. Explore our partnerships below.

Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY

The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY and INN are teaming up to connect graduate students from the school’s “Newmark J-Corps” program with INN member organizations for eight-week summer internships in 2024. In CUNY’s 16-month graduate school, these students specialize in at least one media format — print, video, broadcast TV, documentary, photo, audio or data journalism. There are also interns who are participating in the school’s master’s programs in bilingual reporting (Spanish + English). For non-profit news organizations that are unable to support a paid intern, the school has a 1:1 stipend match program for a limited number of newsrooms.

Applications for INN members for summer 2024 are closed.

The Missouri School of Journalism

The Missouri School of Journalism partners with INN to match five undergraduate and graduate-level students with newsrooms to work on projects including membership models, audience engagement, newsletter development, analytics and live event planning. The internship program selects diverse students to place into newsrooms, particularly in audience and product positions, where they can build management and leadership experience. Meet the 2023 interns.

Applications for INN members for summer 2024 are closed.
