Real hands-on work in a real-life professional setting is a key to a young communicator's future success. The Foundation provides that key through its journalism internship grants program for undergraduates offered in cooperation with our 37 partner schools. The schools recommend internship grant recipients and oversee placement in the best workplace, matching aspirations to job-readiness and helping students move to the next level of their budding journalism careers.

In 2010, the Foundation awarded 76 internships to college students. Internship grant recipients returning to school also receive scholarships.

Linda Nguyen, from the University of Tennessee and April Alexander from Hampton University interned at The Knoxville News-Sentinel this summer and created a "dynamite" YouTube video as a way to say goodbye to their colleagues in the newspaper's online editorial group.

University of Cincinnati student Lauren Justice spent the summer as a photo intern at the San Fancisco Examiner and created a photo memoir blog of her internship and travels from Cincinnati to San Francisco.
