Indiana University Bloomington
The Poynter Scholarship/Internship is one of The Media School's top academic awards. It provides a grant worth several thousand dollars and a summer internship at the Tampa Bay Times for a student who is a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism degree at Indiana University Bloomington.
The recipient of the scholarship and internship is chosen by a committee of Media School faculty appointed by the dean. The award is made on a basis of outstanding scholarship and dedication to news-editorial journalism.
The scholarship/internship honors a family long-prominent in Indiana journalism, and especially Nelson Poynter, a former editor-in-chief of the Indiana Daily Student and, later, founder of Congressional Quarterly and the publisher of the St. Petersburg Times, now known as the Tampa Bay Times.
During the selection process, candidates will be screened on the basis of their completed applications, and only candidates deemed qualified by the committee will be invited to the personal interviews.
Apply by Sept. 30. Students selected for interviews will be notified by email by Nov. 1
Please provide complete information for each of the three most recent media-related professional internships or jobs you have had.
Include three examples of your work along with the date and source for each. At least one must be a writing sample. Be sure to include samples from professional media outlets in addition to student media, if available.
