The Chronicle of Higher Education is seeking four interns for the summer 2014 session, which will begin in May and last through August. The Chronicle's internships aim to give current undergraduates and recent college graduates the opportunity to gain professional experience at the No. 1 source for news about higher education. Applicants must show a strong interest in pursuing a career in journalism with relevant coursework or prior experience.
The internships are full-time in our Washington, D.C. office. In addition to a $500 weekly stipend, academic credit can often be arranged.
Interns will report and write daily news articles for The Chronicle's Web site (which often appear subsequently in print), write news articles for other sections of the newspaper, blog, and do research for special projects.
There is very little grunt work. Interns who prove themselves as reporters and writers are often asked to write full-length features.
The Chronicle places a premium on reporting that is accurate and writing that shines. All writing, including that done by staff reporters, is carefully edited. Interns typically leave with a set of strong, varied clips.
Applications for the internship can be sent via either e-mail or hard copy. They must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, January 3, 2014 and sent to:
The Chronicle of Higher Education
1255 23rd Street, NW, 7th Floor
Washington, D.C. 20037
