The Boston Globe's summer journalism internship program began more than 50 years ago as an opportunity for college students to gain practical experience from a major news organization.

The largest group of interns works in Metro as general assignment reporters. Other intern reporters are assigned to Sports, Living/Arts, Health/Science and Business. We also have intern positions in the Photography and Editorial Design departments, and on the News copy desk. The copy editing position may be filled by a Newspaper Fund* intern. Internships are NoT limited to students with undergraduate journalism majors. All students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program or who will be graduating in May or June may apply, as well as journalism graduate school students who have NoT had professional journalism experience.

An aptitude for journalism is the most important qualification for the internship. A previous internship at a daily newspaper is recommended. Applicants must have a driver’s license and should be comfortable driving.

Summer interns work as full-time employees for 12 weeks, between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Interns are paid a weekly wage, and shifts vary. An intern supervisor serves as a writing coach and there are weekly meetings with editors and staff members on a range of issues and topics pertaining to journalism.

Check back in September for information on the 2016 Program.
