Who is eligible?

Any UCDC student may apply for the internship (quarter, semester or extended quarter students.) Preference is given to those who have been published, either in a school newspaper, a newsletter, or on-line. Promising writers who can establish their qualifications will also be considered. Those with radio or other broadcast experience are also encouraged to apply.


Interns are expected to work four days a week. Schedules are flexible to accommodate research seminars, and all UC schools’ academic calendars. Interns work out of an office at the UCDC center, with regular assignments at the Capitol, the White House, or other federal agencies.

How to apply

Those interested should send a cover letter, resume, at least two writing samples (no more than five) and two letters of recommendation to Marc Sandalow at The application process will remain open until all positions are filled.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Marc Sandalow at (202) 974- 6204 or
