Arnolt Center Application

Apply to work at the Arnolt Center for Investigative Journalism

The Michael I. Arnolt Center for Investigative Journalism is dedicated to educating students in investigative reporting techniques and creating provocative, original journalism for the public in Indiana and beyond. As a working newsroom, it strives to protect the vulnerable, expose wrongdoing and act as a watchdog in Indiana and nationally.

We welcome undergraduate students to apply for an opportunity to work at the center for academic credit (three credits per semester). Opportunities are generally limited to third- and fourth-year undergraduate students, but if you are a first- or second-year student and you believe you have something to contribute, we invite you to make your case.

We welcome applications from students across the IU Bloomington campus. You don’t need to be a Media School student to apply.

This application has three parts:

Part I: Your name, contact information and indication of your skills and interests
Part II: Your Arnolt Center essay (instructions follow)
Part III: Your current resume

Please note that no incomplete applications will be considered.

Applications are due Sept. 6.
