Test Monitors

The News Fund places talented college juniors, seniors and graduate students in well-respected newsrooms as paid interns. We seek college professors and career services faculty to promote the internship programs on campus and serve as test monitors. Many interns say they initially heard about the Fund’s programs from a college professor, making our campus test monitors a critical connection.

Fund interns receive one-week of pre-internship training at one of its residency programs. Colleges can apply to serve as the residency site for the digital media, data journalism, business reporting or multiplatform editing. Deadline for proposals is Oct. 1.

Host a Residency
