Description:, an online news website covering state government and politics, has a summer internship of 13 weeks for a reporter covering state government starting in May or early June.

The internship is open to rising seniors, master’s candidates or graduates, and students or graduates who have had experience on student newspapers or other publications.

A familiarity with Maryland and state government would be a major plus.
