Paid new media internships

Serra Media, a Seattle-based company that develops websites and web applications for newspapers, journalism start-ups and university journalism programs, is offering paid internships this summer. Interns may also earn college credit and telecommute.

Here's the kicker: applicants get to design their own internship experience.

"We’re taking a different approach to finding interns," the company's website states. "Instead of a specific, rigid framework of duties, tasks, hours and pay that you try to ply yourself into, we’re inviting you to make a pitch on the assignment as if you were an entrepreneur. (Because you are.) These are paid positions, but the amount we pay and the number of hours you work per week are flexible. So, instead of applications for a set position and fixed number of hours, we’re looking for pitches from people who are interested in working with us to develop our ideas and see their own brought to market, no matter their situation."

In addition, "You can earn course credit for the assignment, if needed. You can also work remotely if you don’t happen to live in the Seattle area."

Apply by May 22. For more information, click here.

Interns may telecommute: "If you’re based around Boston, then you’re welcome to come down to our office to work. If not, you’d work from wherever you are, on your own schedule."

As for pay, it's "Not a lot ... But it might pay your rent if you live somewhere cheap. The idea is that you’d probably do this work in addition to a traditional internship or your regular job."

Northwestern offers journalism scholarships to computer whizzes

If you have computer skills and an interest in journalism, consider applying for a new full scholarship at Medill, the world-renowned graduate school of journalism at Northwestern University.

You don't need any journalism experience. Applications are being accepted now.

"We are offering full scholarships to Medill's master's program in journalism ... to people with computer programming skills," associate professor Rich Gordon told cyberjournalist.net. "The goal is, in essence, to try to create more Adrian Holovatys."

"We want students who already have tech skills to come to Medill, learn the culture, craft and mindset of journalists, and figure out interesting ways of connecting technology and journalism. As you know, there are many ways the industry and the academy have tried to teach tech skills to journalists -- the proposition here is that it would be interesting to see what happens if we teach journalism to tech types."

Scholarship winners can enroll at the Chicago area journalism school in January 2009, June 2009, September 2009 or January 2010, according to Medill's website. The scholarships were the result of a Knight News Challenge, which gave Medill more than $600,000 to create an academic program blending computer science and journalism, designed to fill a staffing void at many digital news sites.
