PRINCETON, N.J. — The Dow Jones News Fund has extended the deadline for its 2019 summer internship programs to Nov. 12.
Students should complete their applications and take the required tests by Nov. 12. College professors serving as test monitors should return paper tests to DJNF postmarked on or before Nov. 12.
The Fund’s internship programs offer college juniors, seniors and graduate students a week of advanced training at top universities before they report to work at prestigious, paid internships in data journalism, digital media, business reporting and multiplatform editing. During each residency, interns are taught the latest newsgathering, editing and storytelling technologies.
The Fund and sponsoring media cover travel costs to and from training and to newsrooms. Interns are responsible for their housing and commuting costs during the internship. Students who return to school after a successful internship will receive $1,000 college scholarships.
Students enrolled full-time by the deadline are eligible to apply, including December graduates, and U.S. students studying abroad. Former professional journalists are not eligible.
To apply, students should visit the programs page on the Fund website. Applicants are required to complete an online application and take a one-hour test for the program(s) they are applying to by Nov. 12.
