The Scripps Howard Foundation sponsors an internship at the Hispanic Link News Service, which has been published in Washington since 1980. Interns report for work each day at the Hispanic Link News Service’s Washington office. They cover a wide variety of news of interest to Hispanic Link’s readers, who are leaders in the U.S. Hispanic community. The Hispanic Link intern lives with the Scripps Howard Foundation’s Semester in Washington interns in furnished apartments and participates in some activities with the Semester in Washington interns.
Applicants should be college juniors or seniors studying print, online or broadcast journalism. One Hispanic Link intern is chosen for each of three terms.
