The Dow Jones News Fund seeks college juniors, seniors and graduate students for editing internships with some of the nation’s most respected news outlets. The News Fund provides week-long, pre-internship training, paid summer internships and awards $1,500 scholarships.
Interns are paid a minimum of $450/week for 10-12 weeks.
During the week of training, interns hone their visual design, headline writing and line editing skills; help publish high-quality print and digital products on deadline; and strengthen their news judgment skills. Click here
