Student Journalism Corps Internship

Do you have what it takes to join the California Student Journalism Corps?

Who We Are
The EdSource Student Journalism Corps is recruiting enthusiastic college journalism students across California interested in reporting about K-12 and higher education.

We are establishing a network of college student journalists to report on education in California and help promising student journalists earn real-life professional experience by contributing to EdSource, which operates the largest newsroom of education reporters in the state.

Who We Want
We are seeking college student journalists looking to hone their skills and prepare for the job market and life after college. Students, who must attend California colleges or universities, will learn from professional journalists and earn a stipend of $750 per semester.

Covering education in California is a tough job. The state public school system (K-12) alone serves 6.2 million students and operates 10,315 schools in 1,181 school districts. California’s higher education system is the largest in the country and one of the most diverse in the world.

What You Get
You will get a chance to collaborate with some of the most seasoned education reporters in California at EdSource, which has emerged as a model for nonprofit journalism. You will be contributing to coverage read by the state’s influential decision makers who shape education policy and reform.

Students may contribute to EdSource in multiple ways, including one or more of the following:

  • Keep EdSource posted on emerging issues on campus, serving as “eyes and ears” on the ground.
  • Be sources on issues that EdSource is reporting about, and potentially interview others on those topics.
  • After a training period, potentially contribute commentaries to provide much-needed student perspectives on a range of issues.
  • Contribute to EdSource stories with joint bylines with EdSource reporters or attribution credit.
  • Write news stories that EdSource can publish under your byline.

How to Apply
For more information about the program and how to join the corps, contact Tanya Perez, student corps editor, at Applications are accepted by the following dates:
For fall session, from Monday, July 8, until Friday, August 9, 2024. Note that applications are considered on a rolling basis: Earlier applications will be reviewed and internship offers may be made prior to the submission deadline.

EdSource is an equal opportunity employer and an organization that values diversity. People from all diverse backgrounds, all races, colors, origins, ancestries, creeds, religions, genders, ages, disabilities, veteran statuses, sexual orientations, and marital statuses are strongly encouraged to apply. Its newsroom of professional journalists provides in-depth coverage and analysis, with a goal of engaging Californians and highlighting strategies for student success. Articles are published online, in daily newsletters and through partnerships with other news organizations.
