We want critical thinkers, students who have portfolios that show ambition and skill across platforms, reporters and photographers who want to make a difference with readers – however those readers find us. If selected, you will be assigned to a team for the summer, paired with a staff mentor and provided opportunities to learn from experienced journalists through group discussions with other interns.

What’s the news organization like?
The American-Statesman is the oldest, largest and most honored news organization in Central Texas, delivering current, relevant and compelling news and entertainment coverage through a suite of print and online products. We serve a rapidly growing metro area of 1.8 million people. Our journalists have won numerous state and national awards for their work. Our newspaper and websites are consistently rated among the best in Texas. We have an educated, diverse and demanding readership that is engaged and mobile.

What about Austin?
The Capital of Texas is a dynamic and rapidly growing high-tech city, featuring the 52,000-student University of Texas, the State Capitol and a thriving live music industry. It has the cultural amenities of a college town, unique outdoor attractions and world class entertainment and sporting events year-round. Best of all, it’s a great news town.

What about your intern programs?
During the fall and spring semesters, we select as many as 8 part-time interns, and, during the summer, we have 4 full-time interns. All internships are designed for college students pursuing a career in journalism.

Summer interns: From a nationwide pool of candidates, we select four full-time interns seeking front-line experience in news, business, features and sports reporting, still and video photography and online content editing. Our program pays $450 a week for 11 weeks, and we provide housing at St. Edward’s University near the newspaper.

The same work as full-time journalists here. Our objective is to help interns grow with challenging assignments.

Interns are required to have a valid driver’s license, transportation and proof of insurance. Our interns have come from all over the country.

How do I apply?
Send an application packet that includes a cover letter, a resume, a 2-3 page autobiography and an appropriate sampling of your work.

When are applications due?
The application deadline for Summer 2015 interns is November 7, 2014. The applications may be sent via email or standard mail. A standard post mark of November 7 will work. Send your application packet to:

It partners with educational, cultural and philanthropic institutions to present free, non-partisan public events and conferences in cities across the U.S. and beyond and to publish original daily journalism that is distributed to more than 100 media outlets nationwide.

Fellows may be graduate or undergraduate Cronkite students with an interest in sustainability, energy, the environment and related fields. Duties include generating story ideas, identifying and working with Zocalo contributors (who include journalists, scholars and non-writers), writing and editing articles for the website, working with media syndicate partners, building audiences for journalism and events through social and other media, and assisting with the planning and execution of public discussions and lectures on current affairs topics. Fellows will work with a small staff of writers and editors who produce new content daily for the website and its media partners and who solicit contributions from diverse people whose voices would otherwise go unheard. Strong editing skills are a must as are curiosity and energy. The successful applicant will be able to generate story ideas off the news that provide a different perspective on current topics and write and edit for voice.
