Website Dallas Morning News

The Dallas Morning News, Texas’ leading newspaper, offers summer internships in local news, business, features, editorial, audience, sports, photography, copy editing and data journalism. Summer positions are also available in political reporting at our Washington bureau and at our Spanish-language publication, Al Día. Several departments also have openings for interns during other times of the year.


Applicants must be enrolled in college and working toward a degree (associate, bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate) or may have graduated within six months of the internship start date. Previous daily newspaper experience is requested. All applications must include a cover letter, résumé and three references reachable by phone. Additional materials are required to apply for specific positions. Only electronic applications are accepted.


Summer interns are full time for 10 to 12 weeks. Effective Jan. 1, 2022, interns will be paid $16 an hour for a 40-hour workweek, except for the Washington intern, who will be paid $17 an hour.


The standard workweek is Monday-Friday, but some weekend, night and holiday shifts may be required. The sports internship takes place in the fall. Summer interns are expected to attend training sessions and other events. Interns who need to work remotely will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


The Dallas Morning News will notify applicants who are not selected, but they should not expect an explanation of the decision. Once an  applicant agrees to accept the internship and abide by the stated requirements, The News expects the intern to fulfill all elements of the agreement, including agreed upon start/end dates and pay.


The internship program at The Dallas Morning News is one of the best in the country. We pride ourselves on treating our interns like full-time staffers from their first day, giving them crucial experience and insight into a journalist’s career and daily responsibilities.

Newsroom members and panelists from other organizations lead training sessions on critical skills for journalists in an ever-changing industry. Interns also have the chance to interact with members of senior leadership through one-on-one chats and a lunch with the publisher.

Interns will be held to the same journalistic standards, quality guidelines and ethics as full-time staffers, including adherence to professional decorum in dress, promptness and courtesy.

Interns are expected to have a basic knowledge of AP style. The ability to speak another language would be helpful, and familiarity with digital media is required.
