DC Internships Announces Extended Deadline!

Washington, DC- Students who are still deciding what to do this summer can take a big step in their journalism or public relations career. There are numerous quality internships still available through The Fund for American Studies DC Internship program. It’s not too late for students to spend 8 weeks in Washington, DC completing an internship, earning credit, and expanding their professional network.

There has never been a more important or challenging time to be a journalism or public relations intern in Washington, DC. Students can be in the heart of the headline-making capital and show that they have what it takes to get past the noise and report the facts!

We have been running academic internship programs for over 50 years and through our comprehensive program all participants will be placed in an internship within one of the following types of organizations:
• Print or broadcast media outlet
• News service
• Internet publication
• Public relations firm
• Capitol Hill press office
• Advocacy organization

Our staff works to place students with an organization that fits their skills and career goals. They will gain real-world experience that will set them apart when it’s time to find that first job after graduation.

Live in the heart of Washington, DC on George Washington University’s campus, just steps from the Lincoln Memorial and Department of State. Roommate matching with other program participants is included.

Students can maximize their summer by also taking courses between 3 and 9 credits from George Mason University. These courses designed for journalism and communication majors with a variety of engaging elective options. Learn from Professor Richard Benedetto, founding White House and Campaign Reporter for USA TODAY. His internship seminar will give an insider’s view of political reporting.

Over 85% of our students receive scholarship awards based on financial need and merit and funding is still available. Awards typically range from $1,000 -$4,500.

Students are encouraged to visit www.DCinternships.org/JComm for more information and to begin an online application. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through the April 3 extended deadline. Students will be notified of their admission decision within two weeks of completing an application. Questions may be directed to admissions@tfas.org or 202.986.0384.

“The opportunities with my internship were unlimited. I would spend days bouncing between Capitol Hill, meeting with State Department officials, the White House and everything in between. I got to write about topics all over the world and be present for some of the biggest breaking stories.”
