Chronicle of Higher Education Accepting Applications for Summer Internships

Here's the notice from a recent Chronicle issue.

The Chronicle of Higher Education seeks interns for the summer 2007 session, which will begin in June. The Chronicle is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

The internships are full-time in our Washington, D.C., office and will last until September 2007. In addition to a stipend, academic credit can often be arranged.

The interns' primary responsibilities are reporting and writing brief features for our "Short Subjects" section and daily news articles for our Web site (which usually appear subsequently in print). Other opportunities include writing news articles for the various sections of the paper and doing research for special projects. There is very little grunt work. Interns who prove themselves as reporters and writers are often asked to write full-length features.

The Chronicle places a premium on reporting that is accurate and writing that shines. All writing, including that done by staff reporters, is carefully edited. Interns typically leave with a set of strong, varied clips.

Candidates must have experience writing for publication, whether at a student newspaper or professional publication. Experience writing news articles on a tight deadline is especially appreciated. Applications must be received by Friday, March 2, 2007.

Candidates should send a cover letter, résumé, and a maximum of five impressive clips to:
