Your foot in the door

Do you have a passion for the news? Do you crave communication? If you're willing to work hard and know how to make a good first impression, an internship can be your ticket to a rewarding career. The Scripps Howard Foundation recognizes the importance of internships, both for the students who grow in the experience and for the businesses that benefit from the enthusiasm and work ethic of their interns.

The Foundation provides support and funding for internships in four areas: - Semester in Washington - Partner Schools - Communication program - Statehouse News Bureau

Take a look at what we have to offer to find your perfect match.

Living and working in Washington, D.C. is a dream opportunity for talented, young journalists. Our Semester in Washington program offers students 14- or 10-weeks (depending on the semester) of real-world reporting experience for the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire.

We realize journalism and mass communication students need internships to develop their career potential. Through selected partner schools, we annually provide $3,000 internship stipends and $500 follow-up scholarships and grants to more than 70 students.

The Scripps Howard Foundation offers grants to Greater Cincinnati not-for-profits to pay communication majors to intern for their organizations.

We partner with the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University along with several Ohio news organizations to offer students public affairs reporting experience in the state’s capital. The semester-long program provides training and experience and more Ohio Statehouse news coverage.
