Dow Jones News Fund Now Accepting Applications to its Summer Internship Programs

PRINCETON, N.J. (Oct. 1, 2018) - College juniors, seniors and graduate students are invited to apply to the Dow Jones News Fund for paid, prestigious internships in data journalism, digital media, business reporting, and multiplatform editing during summer 2019. The application and test deadline is Nov. 1.

The Fund's internship programs offer interns a week of advanced training at top universities in data journalism, digital media, business reporting, and multiplatform editing before they report to work. During each residency, interns are taught the latest newsgathering, editing and storytelling technologies.

Data journalism interns are trained to collect, analyze and visualize data to unlock compelling stories; digital media interns augment their range of reporting skills using video, audio, data, and social analytics; business reporters spend a week in New York learning to cover all sectors from Wall Street to personal finance and local companies; and multiplatform editing interns hone their news judgment, headline writing, copy editing and page design skills.

American City Business Journals has sponsored training for 10 business reporting interns. The goal is to identify strong, local candidates who live or attend school near ACBJ newspapers to increase the potential for employment when internships end. Interns accepted into this program have attended pre-internship training at New York University with visits to CBS News, Conde Nast, and the New Yorker. In the past four years, 38 business reporting interns have participated.

The Fund and sponsoring media cover travel costs to and from training and to newsrooms. Interns are responsible for their housing and commuting costs during the internship. Students who return to school after a successful internship will receive $1,000 college scholarships.

Kaitlyn Wang, a senior at New York University, was one of 26 business reporting interns who spent a week at New York University learning to cover all aspects of the business before covering the tech industry for GeekWire in Seattle. One of her first assignments was a tour of Amazon's headquarters.
