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.

Program includes a stipend of $2,660 and free housing. Applicants should be college juniors or seniors studying print, online or broadcast journalism.
