Student members of NAHJ are invited to apply for the annual Jennifer Garza Memorial Internship at The Sacramento Bee.
The Bee and NAHJ Bay Area chapter fund a paid 10-week summer internship that aims to give aspiring journalists the opportunity to gain a practical education, professional experience and have a great time in the state’s capital. You’ll work on stories, be assigned a mentor, and hear experts, from the publisher to investigative reporters, talk about the ever-changing world of journalism.
The Jennifer Garza Memorial Internship, which came about through a partnership between the Bay Area chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and The Bee, honors former reporter Jennifer Garza (now deceased), who championed more diversity in the Bee’s newsroom. Stela Khury served as Garza summer 2015 intern (and here are some of the clips she shared with us).
The NAHJ Bay Area chapter is able to partially fund the summer intern with a $1,500 grant received from PG&E. The Sacramento Bee matches the other amount of the paid internship.
