Nebraska Press Association Foundation Summer Internship Scholarship

The Nebraska Press Association Foundation encourages talented young people to enter the newspaper business. Beginning this year, the Foundation will award scholarships to Nebraska college students. The Foundation’s internship program provides a meaningful, hands-on training experience for students interested in news reporting, copy editing, photojournalism, advertising, graphic design or visual communications. Our internship program prepares students for careers at Nebraska newspapers after they graduate.

Up to five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to interns who are placed each summer at NPA member weekly newspapers, allowing students an invaluable real-world training experience. If selected as an intern, you would be placed at a weekly newspaper near the area or areas you put on your application. We will place you in a good learning environment, but we cannot guarantee you placement at a particular newspaper.

This is a paid internship. Pay is set by each participating newspaper. You do not have to sign up for school credit to have this internship. However, if you want, the internship would qualify for class credit at most schools.

Internship scholarships are open to student journalists who attend a four-year college in Nebraska.

If you have questions about the internship program, contact Susan Watson via email at or call 800-369-2850.
