Who We Want:
We are looking for students and recent graduates who are smart and creative, good researchers and excellent writers. Interns need to both work well on diverse teams and thrive with individual assignments.
Candidates don't need to know everything about NPR or public radio, but it helps to be at least a little familiar. And it doesn't hurt to love NPR.
For more details on unique requirements for individual internship positions (cover letter, writing sample, design portfolio for example), see the internship descriptions for more details.
Internship positions are offered at our national headquarters in Washington, D.C.; NPR West in Culver City, CA; at the New York and Chicago Bureaus; and in Boston, MA. The location is listed in each of the internship descriptions.
