Default ANF Student Internship Program Fact Sheet for Newspapers 2014

The Arkansas Newspaper Foundation is announcing the revised student internship program for the summer of 2014. Information will be sent to journalism programs at all Arkansas colleges and universities with active departments as well as other departments such as English or political science departments as requested. We believe that this program will benefit newspapers directly by providing paid internships to students who are interested in the newspaper industry. We hope to encourage students to work at the newspaper and to enjoy a positive experience during their internship. Again this year, recent high school graduates enrolled in an accredited college are also eligible. (Recent high school graduates must provide college enrollment papers or other proof of admission.) NEW!

• There will be four (4) matching funds opportunities available from the Arkansas Newspaper Foundation. We will be providing $1,500 to four (4) member newspapers that agree to match the funds for compensation for the paid intern position.
• Interested newspaper must complete an application form and return it to the ANF prior to April 1, 2014. The four newspapers that are selected to participate in this project will be notified on or before April 3, 2014 on first-come, first-served basis.
• It is suggested that interns work 8-10 weeks on a schedule that fits with the newspaper’s temporary employment criteria. Interns are not employees of the Arkansas Newspaper Foundation; therefore, the newspaper is responsible for setting up employee procedures for the intern.
• Interested students will be required to complete an application. Applications will be sent to the selected newspapers for review and selection.
• Newspapers agree to complete an intern evaluation form upon completion of the program. See attached.
• Students will have the opportunity to request a location on their application form, as some students may wish to work at a newspaper close to their home during the summer months. In turn, newspapers have the option of finding their own intern that meets the application criteria. NEW!
• Newspapers may find their own intern through a local school, college or other contact.
• Student applications will go out for the spring semester. If you know of someone who is interested in applying, please have him or her email me.
• This information will be available on the ANF website soon.
• The interview process and selection should be completed by April 20, 2014.
