International Journalism Internship Scholarship Programs

The Department of Communication is offering internship opportunities for journalism students at English-language newspapers in several countries through two scholarship programs. This is an exceptional opportunity for students to gain dynamic journalism experience and to learn about other cultures.

The Journalism Foreign Intrigue Scholarship was established by a UW Journalism alumna, and provides financial support for a journalism student to work as an intern reporter at a foreign media organization and to travel after the internship. The donor’s goal is to give journalism students exposure to another culture and a more thorough understanding of journalism and culture. This scholarship supports reporting experiences in the following locations:

  • Awoko, Freetown, Sierra Leone
  • Citizen Matters, Bengaluru, India
  • The Jakarta Globe, Jakarta, Indonesia
  • The Cambodia Daily, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
  • The Jordan Times, Amman, Jordan

The Journalism North American Scholarship provides financial support for a Spanish-speaking journalism student to work as an intern reporter at a Spanish language media organization. Inspired by the Foreign Intrigue Journalism Scholarship, this opportunity too seeks to provide journalism students exposure with a deep understanding of journalism and culture. This scholarship currently supports reporting experiences in the following location:

  • CIMAC Noticias, Mexico City
