Terry Michael, who runs The Washington Center for Politics and Journalism is looking for candidates for spring semester--deadline is Nov. 8. This is a phenomenal program, which puts you into a newsroom in DC, along with weekly seminars with journalists and newsmakers. It's super-selective (read the Times! Every day!) but it's free and there's a $3,000 stipend to boot. So check it out and come see me if you're interested.
The American Society of Magazine Editors Internship program deadline is December 10. These internships are at major magazines in New York, for the summer. Colleges are asked to recommend only two students from each program, and, although you can apply yourself, applicants recommended by a journalism department are given preference over students from the same school. So if you are looking for a recommendation, please get in touch with me.
