Poynter’s journalism internship database

Students can look for summer, fall and spring internships while news organizations can submit their openings.

Internships serve as a stepping stone for young journalists to improve their portfolio, add work experience and break into the journalism industry. That’s why Poynter maintains this list of news media internships.

News organizations can submit their information and students can look through the listings below. Please note: Poynter does not accept or list unpaid internships.
