inewsource, a San Diego investigative news nonprofit, offers paid internships to journalism students during the fall and spring terms as well as during the summer. We are a media partner of KPBS, a public radio and TV station, and are based in their newsroom on the San Diego State University campus.

The fall and spring internships are part time and are aimed at San Diego County journalism students. The summer internship is full time and not limited to San Diego area students.

At inewsource, our goal is to provide in-depth investigative stories on issues that affect the future of everyday San Diegans. Whether we’re reporting about local government, transportation, education, health, taxes or the environment, our team works together to deliver these stories on the web, radio and TV. When it makes sense, our work is grounded in data. The focus for our interns is to learn investigative and computer-assisted reporting techniques from the staff and assist in producing watchdog work that sets inewsource apart in San Diego. Depending on their reporting experience, they may produce their own stories.

Application deadlines:

Spring term — Nov. 15, 2019 (15-20 hours)
Summer — Jan. 31, 2020 (40 hours)
Fall term — June 26, 2020 (15-20 hours)
