College students who intend to apply for the California Press Foundation’s 2018 Internship Grants Program should plan to have their materials postmarked by Friday, Nov. 17.
Publishers and key people who would host an intern should have reached out to their local community college or university to identify prospects.
The program will provide $2,500 grants to college students who obtain internships at California newspapers in spring or summer 2018. Also, Cal Press directors have earmarked one grant for a most-worthy advertising or marketing intern. There may be a revenue-minded intern in your area. Have you looked?
Cal Press provides grants to select students who demonstrate an exceptional interest in pursuing careers in the newspaper business in California. The students are required to pursue and secure the internship on their own. Internships, which can occur in spring or summer, must be full time and last at least six weeks.
Foundation interns in 2017 served at The Fresno Bee, North Coast Journal in Arcata, Pasadena Star-News and The Sacramento Bee.
