The Student Press Law Center is now recruiting for the Fall 2012 internship term.
SPLC journalism interns work full-time in its D.C.-area office reporting breaking news for the splc.org website and longer-term features for SPLC Report magazine. We welcome those with an interest in multimedia, as we are always looking for ways to liven up the website with visuals. Recent alumni of the SPLC intern program have full-time jobs at The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, Bloomberg News, POLITICO and many other first-rate media outlets. and the internship is especially valuable to anyone who may be considering law school.
For the first time, we are adding this year a "social media" internship for a person whose interests may include the "outreach" side of working in a nonprofit. Responsibilities will include building and managing a presence for the SPLC across multiple social media platforms and otherwise assisting with organization-building and outreach duties.
We do pay a $3,500-per-semester stipend, which (while not as much as we'd like) is at least enough to cover housing expenses in the D.C. area. We would also consider a part-time internship for a D.C.-area college student who can work around college coursework.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but the sooner the better -- details about how to apply are here on the SPLC website:
