Students!
Thank you for your interest in submitting an application for an NAHJ program! Here are a few tips for completing the applications:
  • There is one form for the scholarships and one form for the internships
  • If you are applying for more than one within each form, you will need more than one essay
  • Different teams of judges will be reviewing the applications 

SCHOLARSHIPS

INTERNSHIPS

  • NAHJ will narrow the list of candidates for internships. Representatives from ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, Warner Bros. Discovery Sports  and ESPN will interview the finalists and select the interns
  • If you are applying for more than one internship, you will need to upload an essay for each one
  • If you choose to use the same essay for all the internships, consider tailoring a section of it for each media outlet you’re submitting to

Please be sure to read and follow the instructions. If you still have questions, email the Director of Next Gen. Initiatives, Leslie-Anne Frank, lafran[email protected]. Incomplete applications will be disqualified.
 
Good luck!
