The Chronicle of Higher Education is hiring three fall 2023 reporting interns. The internship runs from September to December.

The Chronicle is the premier source for news about higher education. We’ve been around since 1966, and more than a million people read us online every month. Click these links to see some of the projects we’ve turned out recently. We’re also an equal-opportunity employer, and one of our top priorities is recruiting and maintaining a diverse staff.

As an intern, you’d be a full-time reporter in our newsroom, in Washington, D.C. Interns work primarily on daily-news coverage and also have opportunities to pursue more ambitious stories and contribute to newsroom projects.

Our internship is a hybrid role based in our D.C. office. Remote opportunities are available outside of the DC area for those residing in CA, WA, TX, FL, MI, NY, and NJ. Reach out to our internship coordinator if you have questions about this policy.

The internship is not designed for full-time students. Our program typically involves working Monday to Friday during normal business hours. If you're taking a light class schedule, email our internship coordinator, and we can discuss whether our program will work for your schedule.

To apply, you’ll need to submit a cover letter, a resume, and five published clips that show us what you're capable of. Candidates should have some prior experience in a newsroom, be it college or professional. You'll also need to include the email addresses and phone numbers of three references; at least two of them should have edited or supervised your journalism.

The deadline to apply is Friday, June 16 at 5:00 pm EST.

Questions? Contact Sarah Brown, news editor and internship coordinator. And thanks for your interest.
