The Investigative Reporting Workshop, a privately funded, nonprofit news organization at the American University School of Communication in Washington, is looking for smart, engaged students from around the country for internship positions in the summer of 2016.
Positions include researchers, videographers, graphic designers and web producers. Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to apply. Preferred majors include journalism, communication, film, public policy, public health, history or economics.
The Workshop publishes in-depth stories about government and corporate accountability, ranging widely from the environment and health to national security and the economy. The Workshop pairs experienced professional reporters and editors with students and co-publishes with mainstream media partners as well as other nonprofit news sites.
We have an ongoing relationship with the PBS program FRONTLINE and with The Washington Post. The stipend for all positions is $15 an hour for 30 hours a week.
Positions will run from 7 to 10 weeks, with start dates as early as May 15 or as late as June 15, depending on the end date of an individual student's spring semester.
All Workshop internships will end by Aug. 1. Housing and transportation are not provided, although AU dorms are open to applicants from other schools. The application deadline is Feb. 1, 2016. Please email Managing Editor Lynne Perri a cover letter and resume at email@example.com.
