Deadline approaching for summer journalism internship applications

The St. Louis Jewish Light is accepting applications for its Joseph J. Edlin Memorial Summer Journalism Internship. Mimi Edlin and her family established the scholarship to honor her late husband, Joseph J. Edlin. Joseph Edlin was a longtime Trustee and Past President of the Light. A similar scholarship was founded at the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish News in Florida, where Mimi Edlin currently resides. 

The Jewish Light internship is for high school or college students with coursework or experience in journalism or writing. 

The paid reporting internship will offer students an opportunity to gain experience in a professional newspaper environment and have work published in our weekly newspaper, quarterly magazine and online. 

The internship lasts eight weeks and start and end dates are flexible, depending on the candidate’s schedule. 

Candidates should send a resume, cover letter and three writing samples to Editor Ellen Futterman at 6 Millstone Campus Drive, Suite 3010, St. Louis, 63146 or by email at [email protected] by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13.
