Recognizing the importance of internships to professional development, the Gallivan Program in Journalism, Ethics and Democracy financially sponsors summer intern experiences at several news organizations throughout the country. Students apply for the internships (as they would for any job), and the news outlets conduct the interviewing/screening and make the hiring decisions.
Internships are currently available at CBS News, The Concord Monitor, Los Angeles Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, South Bend Tribune, and The Blade (Toledo, Ohio)
Details of the Gallivan-sponsored internships will be provided to students in the Program during the fall semester. Students can apply at more than one news organization. However, if a student is offered an internship and accepts that internship, the student cannot subsequently decide to pursue another Gallivan-funded internship that year. Information about CBS internships is available here: CBS News Internships
Information about other internship opportunities in journalism is also available throughout the year at Notre Dame’s Career Center. In addition, students are encouraged to seek internships and professional experience on their own, especially at news organizations near their homes or at outlets of particular interest to them.
