The Park Center for Independent Media sponsors a summer internship program each year aimed at giving justice-oriented students the opportunity to work at independent/progressive media institutions and advocacy nonprofits in the nation. 

Participating students are awarded financial stipends (of up to $3,000). In recent summers, students have worked at many leading independent media organizations and progressive nonprofits such as FAIRDemocracy Now!Mother Jonesand the Institute for Public Accuracy. Our interns also frequently work with local outlets such as The Ithaca Voice and WRFI Community Radio.

Students are expected to work at the internship a minimum of 25 hours per week, at least 8 weeks (with some exceptions). Students interested in interning with an independent media outlet this summer should apply soonApplications must be submitted by no later than April 15, 2024.

Please note that students will apply for internships on their own. PCIM can help identify outlets/organizations for which they should contact us.
