DEADLINE: Scripps Howard Foundation Semester in Washington Program — Undergrad

Event Date: 
November 1, 2015

Nov 1, 2015 is the deadline for students to apply for Spring and Summer 2016 reporting internships with the Scripps Howard Foundation Semester in Washington Program.

Interns earn a stipend of $2,660 for the 14-week Spring and Fall terms (Fall term deadline is March 15, 2015); $1,900 for the 10-week Summer session. The program provides free housing in furnished apartments. (Spring and Summer deadlines were Nov 1, 2014.)

Interns report for work each day at the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire, which is housed in the same office as the Scripps Howard News Service, four blocks from the White House. They report and write a variety of stories. Interns also talk with experts at the Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Student Press Law Center, the Washington Post, the State Department, the Pentagon and others to better understand how to cover the news. Interns should be prepared to cover government, politics, breaking news, business, sports and features.

Applicants should be college juniors or seniors studying print, online or broadcast journalism.
