Science Magazine's 2011 Minority Science Writers Internship

Science is a global activity, but the demographics of the journalists who cover it don't reflect that diversity. The Minority Science Writers Internship is for undergraduate students who are interested in journalism as a career and who want to learn about science writing.

The internship takes place each summer at the Washington, D.C., headquarters of AAAS's Science magazine, the largest interdisciplinary journal in the world. Interns spend 10 weeks at Science under the guidance of award-winning reporters and editors, and have a chance to experience what science writers do for a living. Interns are expected to contribute to the weekly news section, including bylined articles in the print and electronic news service.

The paid internship includes travel costs to and from the internship site in Washington, D.C. Living accommodations and expenses are the responsibility of the intern. The internship runs from June to mid-August.

The 2011 summer program application deadline is March 1, 2011. Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate academic program when they submit their application. Please download an application, which includes instructions on submission, at

PA Builders Association Internship

Dr. Reed,

I work for Pennsylvania Builders Association (PBA), as a PR Specialist.

I am the editor of their bi-monthly magazine (Keystone Builder) so I will be getting quite a bit of PR and writing experience.

Recently, I was informed that I will be taking on an intern this summer. Please pass the info on to any interested students.

It’s unpaid but the learning opportunity is great. The intern will be getting "hands on" editing experience for the web, a print magazine, and other publications, along with a few bylines.

Desktop publishing will definitely come into play as InDesign is the main program. He/she will have media contact/training as well.

Hours are open for negotiation. It’d be great to have a KU student if possible! If you could pass on my contact info (this is my work address), I’m able to take résumés and cover letters at any time.

Thanks Dr. Reed!
