Two CJC Journalism Students Win Prestigious Dow Jones News Fund Internships

University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications Journalism students Taylor Bello and Paige Levin have received prestigious Dow Jones News Fund Internships (DJNF). DJNF provides paid summer internships in digital media, business reporting, news editing and data journalism for juniors, seniors and graduate students.

Bello was selected for the news copy editing program and will work at newspapers, websites and other media. Levin will participate in the digital media program based at The Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University in Phoenix.

The DJNF works with news organizations from across the country to offer students a one-of-a-kind internship that provides professional hands-on training in the newsroom.

Journalism Professor Norm Lewis, who administers the tests for internships, indicated that only about one in ten applicants win an internship, and this is the eighth consecutive year that one or more CJC journalism students have won one.
