“At a time when the news industry is undergoing a major transformation and it isn’t clear what it will eventually look like, the commitment of publishers to train a new generation of journalists is both critical and encouraging,” said Rich Holden, BJ ’71, MA ’73, executive director of the Dow Jones News Fund.
The School is one of the Fund’s seven training sites, and Brian Brooks, associate dean of undergraduate studies, will direct the pre-internship program. Interns work a minimum of 10 weeks. Those returning to college will receive $1,000 scholarships.
The students and their DJNF internships are:
- Joshua Barone, The Wall Street Journal
- Chris Carmody, Minneapolis Star-Tribune
- Chris Dieterich; business reporting residency at Dow Jones in New York
- Rachel Heaton, St. Paul Pioneer Press
- Brett Knight, The New York Times
- Stephanie Kukuljan, Kansas City Star
- Hannah Ritchie, The Denver Post
The Dow Jones News Fund, a nonprofit foundation promoting careers in journalism, is supported by the Dow Jones Foundation and other news organizations.
