This program matches students from the Missouri School of Journalism with nonprofit 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 2020 Interns, and contact Damon Kiesow if your INN member newsroom is interested in participating in summer 2021. 

DJNF  interns are diverse, highly motivated, technologically-skilled and eager to use their talents to expand their horizons. DJNF provides training, mentorship and equipment/software (as needed) to facilitate interns working remotely, in-newsroom or a hybrid arrangement, based upon the safest option and best practices in light of the pandemic.

The Dow Jones News Fund seeks nonprofit media partners who can hire summer 2021 interns through its business reporting, data journalism, digital media and multiplatform editing programs. Internships may be remote, hybrid or in-newsroom depending on local safety protocols at the time. DJNF conducts national recruiting, then assesses and trains juniors, seniors and graduate students before they report to work. Outlets commit to pay interns at least $450 per week for 10 to 12 weeks. Top interns are assigned early, so submit requests as soon as possible. For more information, call Heather Taylor at 609-468-0347.
