Dow Jones News Fund names biz journalism interns

April 20, 2022

Posted by Chris Roush

The Dow Jones News Fund will train more than 100 college students to work this summer in paid internships in 77 newsrooms around the country. This represents the largest class in nearly a decade and one of the most diverse in the Fund’s history.

Twenty-nine interns will attend the News Fund’s virtual business reporting program, led by Paul Glader, a professor and director of the McCandlish Phillips Journalism Institute at The King’s College.

Ten other business reporting interns will attend a virtual training session led by Glader and Garry D. Howard, director of corporate initiatives at American City Business Journals, before reporting to work at ACBJ publications in 10 markets around the country.

Howard, a News Fund board member and an alumnus of the 1981 editing program, created the DJNF-ACBJ partnership in 2015.
