Maine Public Jim Dowe Public Media Internship
Maine Public is pleased to offer two paid summer internship positions for college or technical school students interested in careers in news and journalism, digital news, technical and broadcasting fields. The students selected as our 2022 Dowe Interns will have the opportunity to learn from and be mentored by some of public broadcasting industry’s finest.
This program, known as the Dowe Internship, was established in 2015. It is supported by donors who contributed to a memorial endowment fund for Jim Dowe, the CEO of Maine Public from 2007 to 2011, who was a tireless advocate for developing the next generation of journalists and broadcasters and for commitment to public service.
This summer, the Dowe Interns will participate in a 6-week program beginning in June of 2022. The Interns will experience first-hand how creating, communicating and curating content over multiple media platforms can help our communities and the entire State by informing, engaging and connecting people across the State and beyond. The Dowe Interns will travel between our various office locations (in Portland, Lewiston, Augusta and Bangor) and throughout the State of Maine, in compliance with federal and state CDC safety guidelines.
Candidates for the Dowe Internship must be attending a college or technical school, preferably at an institution based in Maine. If the institution is not in Maine, candidates with an existing connection to the State of Maine are preferred.
Interested candidates are encouraged to review the Jim Dowe Public Media Internship website and must submit an online application and the following materials:
- Cover letter
- One (1) writing sample (approximately 1,000 words) and pertinent digital media examples
