Give your summer internship experience the Dow Jones News Fund boost!
College juniors, seniors and graduate students interested in paid summer internships working in top newsrooms across the country should apply now to the Dow Jones News Fund (DJNF) for an experience like no other.
DJNF provides free hands-on, pre-internship training; weekly salaries of at least $450 for a minimum of 10 weeks; $1,500 scholarships; and access to the DJNF alumni network for mentoring and job connections.
Students choose among these programs (and can apply for more than one):
DJNF covers travel, meals and lodging costs for interns to attend the training programs, and transportation to and from the internship. Interns are responsible for their housing and daily commuting costs during the internship.
To apply for a DJNF internship, students must complete an online application, attach supporting documentation and take a test proctored at their college or university by Nov. 8.
Students must complete an online application answering job-specific questions for each program. Applicants must also include: a 500-word essay; a résumé; an unofficial college transcript; and for business reporting applicants three to five clips.
Students are required to complete a one-hour test for each program they apply to. To find your campus contact for taking the test(s), click here. Those without campus monitors or studying abroad should recruit a professor at the university they are attending. Email email@example.com the professor's name and contact information; student's name and contact information; and the test(s) we should send to the professor. To prepare, previous versions of the tests are available here.
College juniors, seniors and graduate students who are enrolled in school full-time as of the Nov. 8 deadline are eligible to apply for the college internship programs. This includes December graduates. Former professionals (those who have worked full-time on staff as a journalist for a year or more) in the U.S. or abroad are not eligible.
