Dow Jones News Fund Digital Media Training Program

 Summer High School Journalism Program

Top journalism students from across the country get intensive digital media training at the Cronkite School each year as part of the prestigious Dow Jones News Fund program.

DJNF students spend a week at the Cronkite School polishing their multimedia skills before they head to 10-week, paid internships across the U.S. at major media outlets such as The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, The Denver Post, MSN, Comcast and The Arizona Republic.

The on-campus training covers visual storytelling and digital editing, creating graphics and interactive maps and producing podcasts, among other topics.  

Launched in 1960, the DJNF program supports training sites at leading journalism schools. Participants are selected competitively and interns returning to college receive $1,000 scholarships. The Cronkite School is the only DJNF-sponsored digital training program for college students in the country.

The Dow Jones News Fund is a nonprofit organization supported by the Dow Jones Foundation, Dow Jones and Co., publisher of The Wall Street Journal, and other news industry organizations. Its mission is to encourage high school and college students to pursue journalism careers by sponsoring workshops and providing internships.
