International Reporting Internships

The Department of Communication offers international journalism internship experiences through two scholarship programs: the Foreign Intrigue Journalism Scholarship and the Journalism North American Scholarship.

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
