Spring Interns - Latin American News Digest
The Latin American News Digest is seeking qualified students for a limited number of internships for Spring 2019. Because the goal of the Digest is essentially a didactic one, to spread the word about news from Latin America, we feel strongly about providing the opportunity for students to participate in this process. Student writers and researchers contribute to our weekly issues by aggregating and writing summaries of news articles found in Latin American sources.

Interns will write 1000-1200 words per week (3-4 section articles or News in Brief items). Interns generally work approximately five-six hours per week with most of that work falling on Wednesdays and Thursdays since submissions are due on Fridays. This internship does not require onsite work. Interns work remotely, but need to be readily available via email, cell and Skype. Spring 2019 internships begin on January 4 and end in the first week of May, 2019. Interns are expected to be available during that time; however, consideration will be given to “breaks” in the schedule if they are arranged with sufficient prior notice. For more information, click here. Interested applicants should submit two references and a letter of interest to Dr. Jana M. DeJong at by November 26. 

Reflect America Fellowship - NPR / Washington, D.C.
This fellowship builds on five years of work to increase the diversity of NPR's sources. In 2013, the network began tracking the race/ethnicity, gender and geographic location of its news sources on its two largest shows, Morning Edition and All Things Considered. NPR found that its sources were overwhelmingly white, male and located on the east and west coasts. A 2016 study of digital sources found similar challenges. This fellowship will boost newsroom efforts to bring more voices into our journalism.

The fellowship is a series of three- to four-month rotations spent with various shows and coverage teams at NPR's headquarters in Washington, D.C. The Fellow will be embedded with producers, reporters, editors and other staff, working to find, vet and book a diversity of experts and everyday people for stories and interviews on the radio, online and in podcasts. The Fellow will also support the efforts of NPR and Member stations to build a public media workforce that reflects America.
