Shorenstein Center Summer Interns will receive a grant of up to $7,000 for travel and living expenses during their internships.  Internships will be 8-10 weeks long during the summer of 2017.  Applications will be accepted through the HKS Common Application on KNet beginning on January 27 until February 17, 2017. Please be prepared to submit a resume, unofficial transcript, and statement of interest describing why you would be the best person for this internship.

In addition, the Shorenstein Center continues to sponsor the Lynette Lithgow Summer Internship.  A stipend of $3-6,000 will be awarded to an HKS student who has secured a summer internship position working for a news organization.  Students are responsible for obtaining employment, and the position should be full-time and last a minimum of eight weeks.  The Lithgow Internship is intended to benefit students with nonpaying or low-paying positions.
