Thanks to a generous grant from the Simon Bolivar Foundation, City Limits' Bronx Bureau is launching a paid investigative internship program that will combine training and real reporting experience over a 10-week period this fall and a 14-week session in early 2015.
We're currently recruiting five students for the fall session.
Students will learn basic reporting and investigative skills as they collaborate with staff and professional freelancers on investigations to appear on our site.
We'll pay $10 an hour. Students must commit to 10 hours per week between 3 and 7 p.m.; some time will be spent in group training and some doing individual reporting. They must be available from the week of October 5 through the week of December 7.
Applicants must have a home address in the Bronx and either be enrolled in high-school or college or have a high-school diploma or GED and be younger than 22. Demonstrable interest in journalism and/or public affairs and writing ability are important.
Applications are due by October 1.
