Paid Journalism Internships

I'm happy to announce that the application for our Fall Journalism Internship Program is now available. Our program offers paid placements in print, broadcast, new media, and investigative journalism, and includes a weeklong workshop. Please inform your students and recent graduates.

Internship hosts include newspapers, media networks, non-profit newsrooms, and new media start-ups. Past interns have worked at a LA news-radio station and Fox Business, and newspapers such as the DC Examiner. Students may also find their own internship and apply for funding. See more past placements.

Our program director, a former journalist, provides mentoring and job placement help during and after the internship. Program alumni were recently hired by the Daily Caller, National Review, and The Monitor in McAllen, Texas.

More information is available at

Students can also still apply to our career-oriented Summer Seminars on liberty. The seminars explain how to apply economic and political tools to careers in journalism, public policy, or academia. Participants can network with renowned professionals in their fields and other participants. In addition, by attending a seminar and meeting our staff, students increase their chance of being accepted into our internship programs.
