The Wisconsin Newspaper Association Foundation is seeking five journalism majors to participate in paid internships during the summer of 2012.
Each position will pay approximately $3,200 each for an eight-week program (based on a 40-hour week at $10 per hour – final schedules may be worked out with host newspapers).
Internships will be awarded to journalism majors or candidates interested in reporting, editing, advertising, marketing, photography or other newspaper-related careers who are enrolled in accredited colleges and universities.
While all divisions of newspaper careers are welcome, heaviest consideration will be given to newspaper journalism majors (including advertising and others) who show professional promise.
Students are asked to submit a completed application along with: (1) a short essay (300 words or fewer) on their personal philosophy of journalism’s role in society; and (2) supporting documents — published work samples, letters of recommendation, etc. to support the application.
