Intern with SPJ
Like journalism? Media law? Freedom of information? Yes, yes, yes!
Society for Professional Journalists is accepting applications for its annual (paid!) Pulliam/Kilgore Freedom of Information Internship program. Two students or recent graduates will work on FOI-related topics, one at SPJ headquarters in Indianapolis, the other with SPJ’s legal counsel in Washington, D.C.
The application deadline is Jan. 24, 2013.
Interns should be familiar with journalism industry issues and have an interest in writing about and researching freedom of information-related topics. The Indianapolis intern will be a current (or recently graduated) undergraduate or graduate student. The D.C. intern has most often been a current law student with a background or undergraduate education in journalism. Get more information and application instructions here.
