College juniors, seniors and graduate students are invited to apply to the Dow Jones News Fund for summer 2014 internships in digital, news and sports editing and business reporting. The application deadline is Nov. 1. More than 60 media companies hired 120 interns in 2013.
Interns will be trained at New York University, Arizona State University, the University of Missouri, Western Kentucky University, Temple University, Penn State University, the University of Nebraska and the University of Texas before reporting to work. News media are required to pay at least $350 per week for a minimum of 10 weeks.
The Fund covers travel costs to and from training then to newsrooms. Students who return to school after a successful internship will receive $1,000 college scholarships. Applicants must take a one-hour business reporting or editing exam in addition to submitting the application forms. Posters, brochures and tests have been mailed to professors on college campuses who have volunteered to serve as test monitors.
