American institute offers paid internships for young journalists

131

The IHS Journalism Internship Program places talented writers and communicators—who support individual liberty, free markets, and peace—at media companies and non-profit investigative newsrooms. The internships with duration of 8 weeks are organized in 4 different categories – newspaper, broadcast, new media and investigative journalism.

Previous experience is a plus but not required. Skilled writers and communicators passionate about liberty are encouraged to apply. A journalism major is not required. Students from all disciplines, including political science and economics, are eligible. The program is open to undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates. As most of the internships take place in the United States, a fluency in English is required. The candidates should also meet the requirements for obtaining a US visa.
The IHS provides the successful candidates with a $3.200 stipend and an allowance for travel to internship. Apart of the 8-week internship in a media or non-profit investigative newsroom, the program includes a weeklong journalism workshop. During the event, experienced journalists share career stories and advice, and outstanding professors explain the foundations of a free press and economic tools for understanding political and economic issues.
You can find more information for the internships and apply online on the website of the Institute for Human Studies.
