At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

FW: Summer Internship at Chicago Public Radio and Chicago Tribune

The Chicago chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association is seeking college students to apply for summer internships at the Chicago Tribune and WBEZ – 91.5 FM. WBEZ has partnered with AAJA-Chicago for the first time to offer one of AAJA-Chicago's student members the opportunity to work in public radio.

The internships are part of the Chicago chapter’s mission to encourage people to enter the profession of journalism and increase diversity in Chicago area newsrooms. They were established more than a decade ago in honor of the chapter’s co-founders, Linda Yu of ABC-7 and David Ibata, formerly of the Chicago Tribune. In addition to great work experience, the winners of the internships receive $2,500 stipends from the chapter.

Application Information:

For more details, please visit the AAJA Chicago website. You can apply for either or both internships. The deadline is Feb. 15. Applicants do not need to be students at Chicago-area colleges or AAJA Chicago members to qualify for the internships; they are open to students across the country.
