American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME)
For over 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, 2,000 college students have worked as ASME interns. Nearly 500 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 as well as college newspapers and 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 attend special events in New York and Washington and meet regularly 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.

As an openly gay man with a disability, I understand what it means to face barriers, prejudice and discrimination in the workforce. That is why it is so important for me to help the next generation of leaders acquire the skills and experience needed to be in high demand for the best policy, communications and development jobs.

I want to let you know about our National Leadership Program for young leaders who want to go into public policy, advocacy, communications or Hollywood, and who are committed to creating a better future. RespectAbility is looking to hire the next generation of leaders to be our Fellows, and we would love to have your help with identifying talented students who are committed to equal rights.

RespectAbility currently is looking to hire Fellows for our Spring cohort that runs from January 14 to May 17, with flexibility for start dates. We will accept 12-15 outstanding applicants from around the country who want to advance disability issues and who are seeking careers in media, public policy or advocacy. The deadline is Nov. 13.

Fellows are given the unique opportunity to work with our highly trained program staff on communications and stigma reduction, public policy, nonprofit fundraising or faith inclusion.

As a Fellow, they will have the chance to help our mission of:
-Reducing the “school-to-prison-pipeline” for people with disabilities by advocating for students with disabilities so they get all of the tools they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
-Erasing the nearly 50 percent gap in labor force participation rate so that diverse people with disabilities can have jobs and a better future.
-Ensuring that diverse people with disabilities are accurately portrayed in Hollywood.
-Educating philanthropists and nonprofits about how they can include people with disabilities equally in their work.
-Fellows also will work with mentors and professional staff, strengthening skills in advocacy and leadership as well as hands-on training in public speaking, writing, social media and networking. The —-Fellowship enables our young leaders to gain critical skills to start their careers in public policy, media or advocacy. Alumni of the program have gone on to work at the White House, Congress, advocacy organizations, The World Bank and elsewhere.

There are opportunities for both paid and stipend Fellowships. Paid fellows make $15 an hour and we hire eight of them each year. Stipend Fellows receive a monthly transportation stipend of $300. Lunch is provided daily for all Fellows. In addition, all Fellows participate in special presentations by guest speakers and intensive strategic communications workshops.

To apply, young leaders must fill out our online application or for more information, contact Ben Spangenberg, National Leadership Director, at BenS@RespectAbility.org or call (202) 517-6272.

Scripps Howard/ProPublica Journalism Fellowship

Applications for the yearlong fellowship are due by October 15.

Here are the tracks you can choose to apply in:

Research Reporting (at ProPublica)
ProPublica’s research-reporters have contributed to countless award-winning projects , co-authored many significant stories, and broken plenty of their own scoops too. They’ve done it by collaborating across the newsroom and diving deep into public records, databases, and data. Perhaps you’ve had fun filing FOIAs or you’ve dabbled with databases like Nexis. This fellowship will require you to think creatively about how to combine those tools with reporting to surface new information.

Engagement Reporting (at ProPublica)
ProPublica has developed a deep expertise in cultivating communities to fuel its journalism. (Yes, that’s really a thing.) Engagement can often be a euphemism for simply social media. This is about much more than that. ProPublica uses the tools of the Internet and communities to fuel reporting. You’ll be working with ProPublica’s engagement team and reporters throughout ProPublica to report and produce powerful, hard-hitting journalism.

Multimedia storytelling (at ProPublica)
ProPublica’s social and engagement team uses video and motion graphics to show visual elements of our investigations that reach audiences within social media platforms. Successful visual investigations have looked into white supremacists who assaulted people at protests in Berkeley, misconduct by a Chicago police officer and members of a neo-Nazi group that discussed domestic terrorism in a secret chat room. You’ll work with our small team to produce visual investigations and develop strategies for audience growth. You’ll learn about design and visual storytelling and have the opportunity to better your motion graphics and video editing skills.

Data Reporting (at ProPublica)
ProPublica is a leader in using data to tell important stories, uncover hidden issues and empower readers to investigate their own lives. You’ll be a key member of the data team, assisting with the conception and execution of the data-driven investigations ProPublica is known for. You’ll gain experience in collecting, cleaning, evaluating and analyzing data for news stories; proficiently use data analysis languages such as SQL and R; and learn how to bulletproof and spot-check your data to ensure accuracy.

Broadcast Newsroom 360 The journalism at the Scripps Washington Bureau/Newsy is built from the ground up – idea by idea, story by story. You’ll work with a variety of teams and learn how to hone your pitches, develop sources, interview and build your skills reporting and writing short, medium and long-form stories across platforms. From text to broadcast, digital video to podcasting, breaking news to investigative, you’ll be exercising all your journalism muscles as part of a large newsroom creating a diversity of stories.

We’re looking for applicants who:
-Can demonstrate their potential in their preferred specialty. That can mean having previous work in the area, or having a deep understanding of it.
-Are committed to telling stories about abuses of power.
-Are excited about all the ways we can do journalism nowadays: from deep data-digging, to working with readers, viewers and listeners to marrying narrative and investigative forms.
-Really likes working with others. Many in newsrooms have their own superpowers, whether it’s sourcing, document-diving, data, engagement or design. The best work is often together.

 

The Association for Women in Sport Media (AWSM) Scholarship/Internship
Nine internships are being offered this year — all of which are supplemented by $1,000 scholarships — available for female college students who have completed at least one year of school. The paid internships are in four areas: sportswriting, broadcast production, media relations and social media.

More than 1,400 men and women have been named Chips Quinn Scholars since 1991, making it the largest and most enduring diversity initiative of the Freedom Forum Institute.

The program’s aim: Provide training and support that will open doors to news and information careers and bring greater diversity to the newsrooms of the United States.

The program, operated by the Freedom Forum Institute and funded by the Freedom Forum, matches qualified candidates with participating news organizations from across the country for 10- to 12-week paid internships.

December 2018 Graduates- Mother Jones Fellowship
Mother Jones is currently accepting applications for its prestigious Ben Bagdikian Fellowship Program, located in San Francisco and Washington, DC. The editorial fellowship positions are full-time opportunities, starting in December and lasting six months, with the possibility of an additional six-month extension.

Tracking the connections between Russia and the Trump administration. Covering the elections. Sifting through public records and massive datasets. Reporting on private prisons from the inside. Mother Jones is breaking news and creating first-rate investigative journalism for over 9 million readers a month. Behind that award-winning journalism—and sometimes in front of it—are the journalists-in training who are deep in the trenches, making our reporting honest, meticulous, and bulletproof.

Mother Jones fellows dig deep into our investigations as fact-checkers, soak up research chops and digital skills, and learn how a nonprofit news business hums. They comb archives and spreadsheets while immersed full time in our collaborative projects. Mother Jones is better for it, and at the end of a six-month or yearlong intensive stint, MoJo fellows are armed with all the tools of the journalism trade—tools they’ve gotten paid to learn.

Fellows work closely with top-notch editors, penning pieces about a transgender inmate risking everything to protest mistreatment in jail; digging into Black Lives Matter’s influence on candidates for elected office; illuminating the transformation of the federal judiciary under Trump; and chronicling the aftermath of the President’s move to end DACA.

Applications for our December 2018 start-date are due October 1. Mother Jones believes that a diverse newsroom strengthens the quality of our workplace and reporting. We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. To learn more about the fellowship position, pay, and how to apply, visit thefellowship page at MotherJones.com.
