Paid internships in investigative journalism

The Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that produces original investigative journalism on issues of public concern, is offering paid internships in the spring and/or summer in its New York and D.C. offices. The position pays $10 per hour.

"Assignments may include everything from poring through government reports, records, and statistics to interviewing government officials, academics, economists, activists, whistleblowers, and others," the ad states. "Interns typically focus on a single project under the supervision of investigative journalists at the Center. Interns also may be asked to assist in online media production, fundraising, and communications."

The application for the spring internship, which will involve working on a project about sexual assault cases, is due immediately. Apply for the summer internship by February 6. The application and more info can be found at http://www.publicintegrity.org/about/our_organization/intern_here/.

This seems like a great place to launch your career. My friend began his journalism career here and now writes for the Politico and regularly appears on Sunday morning political shows.
