Summer 2016- American Society of Magazine Editors
For 50 years, the American Society of Magazine Editors has sponsored the Magazine Internship Program—a ten-week program for rising college seniors at magazines in New York and Washington. Since the program was founded in 1967, some 1,800 college students have worked as ASME interns. Nearly 250 have gone on to successful careers in print and electronic journalism.

Only 10 percent of all Magazine Internship Program applicants are accepted. ASME interns have distinguished academic records and usually have extensive experience working on city and regional magazines or websites as well as on college newspapers or magazines.

ASME interns participate in a three-day orientation program and learn the fundamentals of reporting, fact checking and copy editing. Over the course of the summer, ASME interns also attend special events in New York and Washington and meet for lunch with top editors.

ASME interns report, edit, fact-check and copy-edit for print and online publications. They may sometimes interview celebrities, attend press conferences and work the red carpet—but most of the summer they do the un-glam but essential work of magazine journalism. Application.

Deadline is December 1, 2015.

The Solutions Journalism Network, a non-profit organization working to spread the practice of compelling reporting on the responses to social challenges, has launched a new project working with small newsrooms in the Intermountain West states. We’re looking for journalism students to support the first phase of that work.

We’d like to conduct a content analysis of up to 10 news outlets in our two target areas: The New Mexico/Colorado border region and western Montana.
