DEADLINE: High Country News Internships and Fellowship

Event Date: 
November 1, 2020

Apply by Mar 15, 2020 to be considered for a Summer/Fall (mid-Jul to mid-Dec) internship with High Country News (HCN) in Paonia, CO or by Nov 1, 2020 for Winter/Spring (mid-Jan to mid-Jun) internship or the Jan-Dec fellowship in 2021.

High Country News (HCN), est. 1970, is looking for informed and enthusiastic interns to report on natural resource, environmental and community issues in the 11 Western states. Published twice-monthly in Paonia, CO, HCN is a nonprofit newsmagazine and website "for people who care about the West."

Every year, High Country News offers four to six internship positions, each six months long. Two to three new interns join us each June and January; we provide free housing and a $220-per-week stipend. To help defray moving costs, an additional $500 travel stipend is available upon successful completion of the internship. One exceptional candidate from each session may have the option of staying on another six months as an editorial fellow — a higher-paid, higher-output position.

The 12-month fellowship, with a $375-per-week stipend, is designed for journalists with experience that may preclude them from an internship and who may have something extra, in terms of experience, to bring to High Country News.

HCN strongly encourages Native American journalists, Hispanic journalists and those from other under-represented backgrounds to apply.

When applying, be sure to include “internship application” or “fellowship application” in the subject line. If emailing an application is not an option, candidates may also mail their materials to:
