Summer 2019 Paid Internships: Knight Foundation

Application deadline: Feb. 1, 2019

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is mission-driven and results-oriented. We were established by our founders to support informed and engaged communities.

We value innovation and initiative, teamwork and transparency, all toward achieving positive impact and progress in our field of work. We take our core beliefs from the life and work of the Knight brothers and express them this way:

  • We believe in freedom of expression and in the values expressed in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
  • We believe that quality information is essential for individuals and communities to make their own best choices, and that journalism plays a critical role in that democratic process.
  • We believe in equitable, inclusive and participatory communities.

We are seeking paid summer interns with vision, tenacity, courage, know-how and a commitment to discovery who will tackle substantive projects in journalism, media technology, communications, arts, civic engagement or administration.

Selected interns will spend 10 weeks (typically June 3 to Aug. 9) in Miami, Fla., with a select opportunity available within our communities and national initiatives program in Akron, Ohio, one of our other resident communities. Note that Knight Foundation cannot pay for housing or relocation costs related to the internship placement. See below for a full list of open opportunities.

Please submit your resume or C.V. and a cover letter, not to exceed two pages, to before Feb. 1, 2019.
