Chips Quinn Scholars Program
The program, sponsored by the Freedom Forum, provides internships, training and $1,000 scholarships to college students of color who are pursuing careers in print journalism. Internships are offered in Spring and Summer.
College juniors, seniors or recent graduates with majors in journalism or career goals in newspapers are eligible. Nominees must be enrolled in an historically black college or university or in a college or university that has significant numbers of students who are members of ethnic or racial minority groups.
The Freedom Forum matches nominees with participating newspapers from across the country for 10- to 12-week paid internships. Selected Scholars participate in a four-day orientation program in Arlington, Va., in preparation for their internships.
