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. 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. To apply to the DJNF college internship program, students must complete an online application, attach supporting documentation and take a timed, online test. The application deadline for summer 2023 internships is Nov. 14; the test deadline is Nov. 18. Applicants must attach 3-5 clips of stories they wrote or links to digital content they produced. For data journalism, they may attach code they have written or a data visualization they created; editors can provide headlines, page designs or social media posts. Please note students must combine their work samples into one PDF or Word document.
