Scholarship Description

MISSOURI PRESS ASSOCIATION NEWSPAPER MEMBERS are encouraged to apply for funding for summer interns. The Missouri Press Foundation will be giving away $13,000 this year to Missouri newspapers to assist with their intern employment expenses.

The Missouri Press Foundation offers Missouri newspapers the opportunity to host summer interns for four, six, or eight weeks. Funding will be provided, but newspapers are welcome to augment the funds provided by the Foundation.

Student interns may work as reporters, editors, photographers, designers, advertising representatives, or website editors/reporters, depending on the job being offered by the participating newspapers.
