The Scripps Howard Foundation Semester in Washington program brings two international students per year to Washington to work at the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire for a semester.
The internship is designed to give international students an opportunity to learn about American journalism and to cover events in the U.S. capital. International interns also help inform U.S. interns about how journalism is practiced in their home countries.
Stories written by Scripps Howard Foundation interns may be published in news outlets across the United States and in the intern’s home country.
The internship is open to recent graduates or undergraduate journalism or communications students who intend to pursue careers in journalism after graduation. Interns must be fluent in both spoken and written English.
Interns are paid a stipend of $3,346 for the 14-week spring and fall terms. Interns are housed in furnished apartments paid for by the foundation.
Interns who are selected in the program will work in one of two periods: January to April or September to December.
Because Semester in Washington is going on hiatus after the spring 2016 program, there will not be a fall international intern. Watch for updates to the program on the foundation’s Facebook page or at scripps.com/foundation.
