2022 Summer Internships with Defense News and Military Times

Defense News and Military Times publications are seeking interns for their 2022 Internship Program. They’re looking for students with experience writing and reporting who will work with their news team on daily coverage of the defense industry and military/veteran affairs. 

This is a rare opportunity for candidates looking to practice journalism that focuses on business, national security and the concerns of military service members, veterans and their families. Interns will be assigned byline stories to report and write for publication on internet sites and in print editions. Interns will also support larger team-reporting projects. Editors at the Defense News and Military Times value accuracy, clarity, and a good story. Opportunities are available to work with their video team and on audio projects for candidates with the right skills. 

The internship includes a program for both students who are seeking academic credit and an Editorial Fellow program for recent graduates, which includes a modest stipend. Main office is near Washington D.C., but positions may be available to candidates working remotely.
