Dow Jones News Fund Data Journalism Internship Program

Description

If you have a curious spirit, an appetite for investigative journalism and love numbers, data journalism is for you. Spend next summer asking tough questions, digging into government records and building interactive data visualizations that reveal untold stories. Interns attend a week of training led by journalists from Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), refining skills like making Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, learning computer-assisted reporting and analyzing and cleaning data in order to tell rich, often hidden, stories before starting internships where they apply these skills to issues like education, health care, government, criminal justice and the economy. College juniors, seniors and graduate students who are enrolled in school full-time as of the application deadline are eligible to apply for the college internship programs. This includes December graduates. Former professionals (those who have worked full-time on staff as a journalist for a year or more) in the U.S. or abroad are not eligible. To apply to any or all of the DJNF college internship programs, students must complete an online application, attach supporting documentation and take a test proctored at their college or university. Students selected for the college internship programs receive immersive, specialized, all-expenses paid training at universities before their internships, weekly salaries of at least $450 for a minimum of 10 weeks, $1,500 scholarships for students and graduates with federal loans. Data journalism interns also receive one-year memberships to the Online News Association and IRE; a one-year subscription to the digital AP Stylebook; and a lifetime membership to the DJNF alumni network.
