Dow Jones Test Deadline: Oct. 31
This program is for juniors, seniors and graduate students. Each program provides free pre-internship seminars and weekly salaries for at least 10 weeks. Students are assigned to media based on academic performance, DJNF scores and news outlet requests. Interns who return to college full-time receive $1,000 scholarships.
In the Digital Program, through a 2013 partnership, students who worked as editors for Patch.com were trained at Western Kentucky University. The Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University trained digital interns working for other media.
In the News Editing Program, those selected to work at newspapers, websites and other media attended the Centers for Editing Excellence at Temple University, the University of Missouri, Penn State University and the University of Texas.
Sports Editing Program interns work on sports desks and are trained at the University of Nebraska.
