Students enrolled in an accredited journalism program at a Missouri institution of higher learning are eligible to train during the summer as part of the Missouri Press Foundation Internship Grants Program.
They may work as newspaper reporters, editors, photographers, designers, advertising representatives or web site editors/reporters depending on the job being offered by the participating newspapers.
In addition to earning a salary, interns may receive institutional credit if their school allows it. Interns must assume responsibility to arrange credit with their institution.
