Apply for our summer internship supplement. Deadline: Sunday, June 16.

The deadline for our Summer 2019 Charlie Ericksen Journalism Internship Supplement has been extended to Sunday, June 16. We will award two internship supplements to a pair of students interning at a Washington, D.C. area news outlet.

The supplement will provide students with a check worth $465 and $35 for NAHJ membership dues. The winners will also be matched with a mentor who works as a journalist in the D.C. area.

We’re looking for high school seniors, college students, and recent graduates who will
live in the D.C./MD/VA area during summer 2019,  who demonstrate a commitment to journalism, and show financial need.

About the supplement:

Our intention is to help students who go to school and live in the District, Maryland, or Virginia. We understand many students intern for free and may not have the financial support to do so. We hope these funds will help ease the financial burden. 

We have worked closely with NAHJ founder Charlie Ericksen on the way to distribute this money. He has helped launch the careers of many journalists and to honor him, we launched this supplement in his name.
