Newsroom Internship Program

The Washington Times is a major multimedia organization based in the nation's capital, with an audience that stretches across the country and around the world.

The Times aspires to help teach, train and prepare the next generation of journalists by offering unpaid internships to talented, motivated and resourceful college students who want to develop their skills, cultivate valuable contacts, and produce quality stories.

TWT interns do not make coffee, run errands, or sit and watch professional journalists do their jobs. From their first day, TWT interns are put to work as journalists — with supervision by skilled editors on a variety of desks: Nation/Politics, Sports, Metro and Foreign.

Unpaid internships are available throughout the year. (Transportation to and housing in Washington, D.C., are not included.)


  • Applicants must be in their junior or senior year.
  • An up-to-date resume or curriculum vitae
  • A cover letter identifying the desk you would like to work on
  • No more than 10 clips (preferred) or written samples.
  • A list of three references
