Summer 2024 internship stipend application for UTEP Multimedia Journalism students


Borderzine is now accepting applications from UTEP Department of Communication students majoring in Multimedia Journalism or Digital Media Production for stipends to support internships in professional newsrooms.  Applicants  with previous news internship experience locally or out of town and/or publication in a news outlet, including student media, will receive priority consideration. 

Borderzine plans to award two $3,000 stipends to cover costs associated with completing a 10-to-12 week internship this summer at an online/print/broadcast/cable news or magazine newsroom outside the El Paso area. However, a smaller amount may be available for a local internship that provides an exceptional level of experience.

The deadline to apply is midnight Friday, April 26, 2024.  Winners will be notified by May 2.

In addition to completing the application below, the applicant needs to submit a letter of recommendation and a personal essay of 500 to 600 words in response to these following questions: 

  • If selected, what do you hope to gain from and contribute to the internship experience? 
  • How will the internship further your career goals? What journalism skills do you plan to work on during the internship? 
  • What life experience and/or unique characteristics or skills will you bring to the news internship experience? 
  • What contributions do you hope to make in the future to the field of journalism?
