Interns report for work each day at the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire, which is housed in the same office as the Scripps Washington Bureau, blocks from the White House. They report and write a variety of stories for the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire. 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.

Interns are paid a stipend of $3,349 for the 14-week spring and fall terms and $2,390 for the 10-week summer program. Students are housed in furnished apartments paid for by the foundation.

Applicants must be college juniors and seniors studying print, online, broadcast or visual journalism. Students who have graduated are not eligible. For example, if you graduate in May or August 2015, you are not eligible for the fall program.
