ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM:
TMC’s Independent Media Internship program places students and recent grads who are passionate about independent media with TMC member outlets. The program is geared towards hands-on learning and mentorship in a variety of media fields (audio, video, print, online). We’re investing in our sector’s future by nurturing tomorrow’s journalists.
TMC will fund interns through a stipend of $2,000 over twelve 32-hour work weeks. Over this three month period, interns will complete one or more major editorial projects, have weekly duties (including fact-checking, research, writing and media production) and meet with top editors and reporters for mentoring sessions.
Applicants must have a minimum of 3 years of college or have completed undergrad or grad school within the last year. We are place a high priority on maintaining a non-discriminatory environment and recruiting interns from diverse background.
