PRINCETON, N.J. — The Dow Jones Newspaper Fund will send 78 college undergraduate and graduate students to work as copy editors, multimedia editors and business reporters at news organizations nationwide this summer.
Rich Holden, the Fund’s executive director, said, “We weren’t able to match last year’s total of 102 but the fact that nearly 80 students will work as paid interns through our program speaks volumes about how much our media partners value interns and the future of this industry.”
The Fund’s summer internship programs, begun in 1962, will feature nine training sites.
Pre-internship residency programs begin later in May. Copy editing interns will be trained for two weeks at: Pennsylvania State University, directed by Dr. Marie Hardin; Temple University, Dr. Ed Trayes; the University of Missouri, Brian Brooks and the University of Texas, S. Griffin Singer. Sports copy editing interns will attend two weeks of training at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln in a program directed by Dr. Charlyne Berens. Multimedia interns will train for one week at Western Kentucky University under the direction of Dr. Pamela Johnson. Business reporting interns will spend a week training at New York University with Michelle LaRoche, an editor at Dow Jones Newswires.
Interns work a minimum of 10 weeks for pay at their news organizations. Those returning to college will receive $1,000 scholarships.
