Semester in Washington internships for undergraduate students
Interns report for work each day at the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire, which is housed in the same office as the Scripps Howard News Service, four blocks from the White House. They report and write a variety of stories. 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.
Applicants should be college juniors or seniors studying print, online or broadcast journalism.
Graduates may apply for the multimedia fellowship.
