How the internship program works

Each December and January we take applications for part-time spring and part-time and full-time summer internships. An application can be secured below.

The program is funded by sponsors and proceeds from the Gridiron Show in Hawaii. It is open to college students who went to high school in Hawaii or go to college in Hawaii.

Here are some of the journalists who have gone through the SPJ internship program
