We are no longer accepting applications for the 2020 Summer Internship Program. Please come back in August to learn more about internship opportunities for 2021.
You must be a college junior, senior or graduate student enrolled in a degree program by the application deadline date.
Applicants must have had at least one previous professional news media job or internship.
Foreign citizens can apply for internships. All work samples must be submitted in English. If selected, the necessary documentation for obtaining the proper U.S work visa must be provided.
Yes. It is our policy to pay everyone who works for us, including interns. For summer 2019, the salary was $750 per week.
Our interns report and write articles, edit copy, take photographs, shoot and edit video, create graphics and design on multiple platforms. We treat them as staff members during their employment.
We can point you in the right direction, but interns are responsible for their own housing arrangements. Classified ads and apartment listings are the place to begin your search. We give each intern a subscription to the electronic version of The Washington Post for six weeks before the internship begins to aid in the hunt for housing. Craigslist is also a good resource, as is Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH).
It is preferred that reporting interns have a car available for their use during the internship, but exceptions can be made and reporting interns must have valid driver's license. All interns must provide their own transportation to and from work.
For the 2020 Newsroom Summer Internship application, final selections will be made and e-mail notifications will be sent by Nov. 29, 2019.
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, but be warned that if you ask a question that has been covered here, it will count against you!
