We at the Scripps College of Communication believe students should learn and grow both in and outside of the classroom. For a look at some of the work being done by Scripps College of Communication students and alumni, please visit our On The Job page.
The success of our graduates starts with a strong internship program. Internships give students valuable real-world experiences that help in gaining the experience needed to secure full-time employment in the communication industry.

In 2006, the Scripps Howard Foundation announced a $15 million gift to the Scripps College of Communication to support a wide variety of programs and initiatives involving scholarships and internships, among other things. Because of this unique partnership, Scripps College of Communication students are encouraged to explore careers at the Scripps companies. Openings can be found at www.scripps.com/careers.
Currently, the Scripps Howard Foundation is looking for curious, energetic college juniors and seniors who are studying journalism to report from Washington D.C. during the fall and spring semesters. Interns are paid a stipend and provided free housing in furnished apartments through the Scripps Howard Foundation. To learn more about the Semester in Washington internship, visit www.shfwire.com.
There are several opportunities for students to apply for scholarships that they can use toward their summer and fall internship. All Scripps College of Communication junior and senior students are eligible and are selected from each of our schools.
Each year multiple students are awarded $4,000 to be used towards their summer internship. In 2016, 13 scholarships were awarded. Students must work a minimum of 35 hours over a 10 week period during the summer. The application process starts after Winter Break. Open to all Scripps College of Communication juniors and seniors.
Due to the generosity of the Scripps Howard Foundation, each year seven internship grants are awarded for students from all of our five schools. In addition, another is awarded for entrepreneurship internship and for a student working with The Post. Each student is awarded $3,000 plus a $500 follow-up award and students must work a minimum of 35 hours over a 10 week period during the summer. The application process starts after Winter Break.
