The Texas Tribune internship program provides aspiring journalists the opportunity to hone their reporting skills and learn a host of new ones that will prepare them for the 21st Century newsroom.
“This is not a teaching hospital,” in the words of our fearless leader, CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith. We expect interns who are anxious to dive into daily news coverage alongside our seasoned reporting staff. Interns at the Tribune write stories and blog posts, shoot photos and video, develop news apps and assist with our major data projects. Intern work has appeared in Texas editions of The New York Times through our partnership with the most prestigious newspaper in the country.
We offer internship positions during the fall and summer semesters. Our internship positions are unpaid, and we prefer that interns receive college credit for their work with us. We ask interns to work up to 20 hours per week.
During the fall, we hire two interns for a two-semester, nine-month internship. During the summer we hire up to six interns for a three-month internship.
To apply, please send us your resume, a one-page letter describing what you’d like to accomplish as an intern at the Tribune and up to five of your very best writing/work samples. Please e-mail your application materials, or any questions about the internship program, to the Tribune’s editorial internship coordinator, Brandi Grissom, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
