Missouri Press Association newspaper members are encouraged to apply for funding of summer interns.
Newspapers that are approved for funding of internships will be responsible for hiring their interns. Missouri Press will send a list of the newspapers with Foundation funding to the members of the Missouri College Media Association.
Student interns may work as reporters, editors, photographers, designers, advertising representatives or web site editors/reporters, depending on the job being offered by the participating newspapers.
Interns may receive institutional credit if their school allows it. Interns must assume responsibility to arrange credit with their institution.
Missouri Press Foundation again is offering Missouri newspapers the opportunity to host summer interns for four, six or eight weeks. Funding will be provided, but newspapers are welcome to augment the funds provided by the Foundation.
If your newspaper is interested in hosting an intern, please complete the application form and return it to the Missouri Press Foundation, 802 Locust St., Columbia, MO 65201.
If you have questions contact Doug Crews at 573-449-4167.
Interns eligible for this program must be enrolled in a post-secondary academic, professional or vocational newspaper journalism program in Missouri.
