About the Intern Program
Intern with America's Media Watchdog!
Created in 1992 to mentor America’s youth and to have a positive impact on future reporters, educators and leaders, the MRC’s Youth Education and Intern Program educates and trains students to recognize bias and the need for balanced journalism. We offer students a positive mentoring atmosphere and a supportive environment working side-by-side MRC employees to gain knowledge and experience for the future.
Interns receive hands-on experience in the
News Analysis Division, Cybercast News Service (CNSNews.com), Business & Media Institute, Culture and Media Institute, Marketing Department or Development Department to assist their pursuit of professional careers in journalism, mass media, public relations, marketing and government.
Interns are integral members of the divisions with which they work, and as students, they receive extra attention and mentoring to ensure their MRC experience is valuable. Our intern coordinator works with each division to oversee the progress of all interns. Interns also attend functions and activities both inside and outside of the MRC, including lectures with guest speakers, seminars at The Heritage Foundation and tours of DC landmarks.
More than 100 college and university students have interned at the MRC since the program began 15 years ago. Several interns joined our staff as full-time employees.
“This is an internship where any kind of journalist can feel comfortable – from the most inexperienced newbie to a seasoned vet, CNSNews.com manages to tailor the experience to your needs and works with you to make sure you’re always learning and developing."
– Nathan Burchfiel, CNSNews.com Intern, Woodstock, MD
