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 must complete an online application where you will be prompted to create your candidate profile and answer job-specific questions for each program. Applicants must also include: a 500-word essay; a résumé; an unofficial college transcript; and for business reporting internships three to five clips.

Tests:
Students are required to complete a timed, one-hour test to be considered for internships. DJNF will email applicants a link to the test after the application is submitted. It is strongly recommended that students review previous tests available here.

College juniors, seniors and graduate students who are enrolled in school full-time as of the Nov. 9 deadline are eligible to apply for the college internship programs.
