Media Can Still Request Summer Interns
The Dow Jones News Fund invites news media to hire digitally savvy college juniors, seniors and graduate students for 2015 paid summer internships. As newsroom budgets and summer schedules change, turn to DJNF to fill staffing needs.

News organizations agree to pay each DJNF intern at least  $400 a week for 10 to 12 weeks of work. News media may request interns by clicking this link. DJNF asks participating news organizations to pay $1,200 per interns to help finance pre-internship training at universities.

Study: Digital Internships Influenced Hundreds

For nearly 20 years, the Dow Jones News Fund has influenced the journalism careers of hundreds of journalists through its digital workshops. In an effort to enhance the program, Dow Jones surveyed DJNF Digital Workshop alumni to explore the most important skills the alumni learned and built upon during their training, where they landed after the internship, and more. Visit the website for infographics, video.

The study was conducted by a team led by Dr. Pam Johnson of Western Kentucky University who ran a digital internship program for the Fund from 2007 through 2013. She also directs a DJNF-sponsored digital program for professors from Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The program offered in July taught instructors how to create news apps.
