The International Press Institute in Vienna, Austria, is accepting applications for two IU students to work on multimedia and communications projects through internships for six to eight weeks next summer.

IPI is a global network of editors, journalists and media executives working to protect media freedom and free news flow worldwide. Associate professor Tony Fargo has worked with IPI projects in the past, often with Media School students as research partners, and Media School students have served as interns the last several summers.

The two interns will coordinate social media and create photos and video, multimedia design and marketing materials. Interns also will take part in legal research.

To apply:

  • Submit three to five clips of journalistic work and a cover letter proposing a project to focus on and cover during the course of the internship.
  • Choose a news item from the IPI website and write an essay of 500 words or fewer on the topic.
  • Submit your application materials in PDF format to Amy Cornell, director of student services at The Media School, by 5 p.m. Nov. 17.

This internship may count for academic credit through the school. Contact Amy Cornell, director of student services. if you are interested in that opportunity.
