Paid internships @ Indiana newspapers

Paid summer internships in reporting, graphic arts and photography are available at newspapers in Indiana for college students.

But there's a catch: Students must have at least one term remaining following completion of the internship and they must be residents of Indiana or attend an Indiana college or university

The "Pulliam Internships" run 10 weeks and pay $330 per week. Although most internships will occur during the summer months, they may be performed any time prior to Dec. 31 of the given year.

By February 27, send a resume, recommendation letter, three work samples and a personal statement of 400 words or less on why you want to do the internship. You must also submit an application form, which can be downloaded online. Mail materials to: Karen T. Braeckel, Director, HSPA Foundation, Pulliam Internship Program, 41 E. Washington St., Suite 301, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
