Scholarships available for political institute in D.C.

The Washington, D.C.-based Institute on Political Journalism is now accepting applications for the Feb. 7 Priority Deadline. Through its Leadership Scholars Program, the Institute has at least 25 full scholarships to aid students in attending summer 2018 programs in Washington, D.C. Details may be found by clicking here.

Sponsored by The Fund for American Studies, and in partnership with George Mason University, the Institute on Political Journalism (IPJ) is an eight-week summer academic internship program that offers undergraduate students a first-hand look at the journalism and public relations in our nation’s capital through:

  • An internship placement in journalism or strategic communications
  • Courses for credit in economics and government
  • Exclusive lectures, briefings and professional development seminars
  • Housing in the heart of Washington, D.C. 

The goal is to provide students with hands-on experience in reporting, editing, interviewing and navigating the media landscape in Washington. For public relations students, we work to put them front and center with companies and organizations that provide a variety of services for their clients: crisis management, media promotion, advocacy campaigns, legislative and federal outreach.

Students should apply by Feb. 7 for priority admissions and scholarship consideration.

The Association for Women in Sports Media is accepting applications for its 2018 scholarship/internship program. AWSM wants to find the nation’s most promising young women who are pursuing sports media careers.

AWSM is a non-profit organization founded as a support network and advocacy group for women in sports. It works to promote and increase diversity in sports media — and one of its hallmark programs is this summer program, which has placed more than 150 women in paid internships since 1990.

AWSM has up to 10 paid internships (all of which are supplemented by $1,000 scholarships) available to female college students who are sophomores and older. The internships fall into three categories: print/digital (reporting at a newspaper/magazine/website), broadcast journalism (production and occasionally on-air work) and media relations (PR, etc. for a team or league).

Last summer, winners spent their summers working at Sports Illustrated, ESPN, the Golf Channel, MLB.com, USA Today and CNN.

In addition to the paid internship and scholarship, recipients will receive complimentary registration and lodging for the 2018 convention.
