The Washington Press Club Foundation is pleased to announce plans to expand our summer internship program, beginning this summer.
The Ford Corporation, a WPCF supporter, will underwrite a fully-funded, six-week $6,000 summer internship covering government and politics from Washington for a news organization whose mission is primarily to serve a minority or women’s audience.
WPCF interns should be enrolled as students as of January 1, 2011, and should demonstrate financial need. The grants are to fund new intern slots, not offset existing costs.
Minority/women’s news organizations interested in applying for the new grants should contact WPCF executive director Suzanne Pierron at firstname.lastname@example.org
