Here are more than 100 journalism internships and fellowships

Internships and fellowships continue to serve as a stepping stone for young reporters to break into the journalism industry. These jobs can be at local publications or major national outlets, but they all have the potential to lead to skills-growth, networking and potentially, a full-time job.

Now is the time for those seeking journalism internships to apply for spring and summer positions. Not sure where to start? Poynter's News University's webinar Flourish, Don't Flounder, at Your First Journalism Job or Internship can help point you in the right direction.

The list below includes internships and fellowships across a variety of platforms in cities all around the United States, and in some cases, around the globe. This list is, of course, not exhaustive. In some cases, even prominent groups have yet to publish a job posting or accept applications, including The New York Time’s new year-long fellowship. Don’t see your favorite outlet? Check out its website and reach out.

If there's an internship I missed, please email me at advorak@poynter.org to have it added.
