The award-winning Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism is seeking applicants for three paid summer internships.

The interns will report on investigative stories and may use other skills, including photography and data analysis and visualization, to produce investigative coverage.

The internships will begin in June 2014 and end in August. The internships may be extended.

Eligibility is limited to undergraduate and graduate students who are enrolled, at the time of application, in the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication, where the nonprofit and nonpartisan Center is based.

Pay is $10 an hour. The schedule is about 40 hours per week and is flexible.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16, 2013.

Interns are provided office space in Vilas Communication Hall.

Interns receive intensive training and experience in interviewing, researching and writing. They work with the Center’s staff and partners at Wisconsin Public Radio and Wisconsin Public Television to produce high-impact investigative journalism on government integrity and quality-of-life issues.

Interns also assist mainstream and ethnic media outlets around Wisconsin in investigative coverage. Some travel around Wisconsin may be required. Access to a vehicle and a laptop is required.
