CHIPS QUINN SCHOLARS PROGRAM FOR DIVERSITY IN JOURNALISM

The Chips Quinn Scholars Program for Diversity in Journalism offers students hands-on training and mentoring by caring news veterans. Nearly 1,400 men and women have been named Chips Quinn Scholars since 1991, making it the largest and most enduring diversity initiative of the Newseum Institute.

The program’s aim: Provide training and support that will open doors to news and information careers and bring greater diversity to the newsrooms of the United States.

The program, operated by the Newseum Institute and funded by the Freedom Forum, matches qualified candidates with participating news organizations from across the country for 10- to 12-week paid internships. Selected scholars participate in an intense, one-week orientation/multimedia training workshop at the John Seigenthaler Center in Nashville, Tenn., in preparation for their internships. The training in Nashville is paid for by the Newseum Institute.

The annual application deadline is in October. College juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent graduates with majors in journalism or career goals in journalism are eligible to apply.

The program was founded by John C. Quinn, former deputy chairman of the Freedom Forum, and his late wife, Loie, who wanted to honor their son, John “Chips” Quinn Jr., who was an upstate New York newspaper editor when he was killed in an automobile accident. For further information, contact Program Director Karen Catone at kcatone@newseum.org or 202/292-6271.

BG Exchange Club Internship

The Bowling Green Exchange Club has just celebrated 70 years of service to the community and during our anniversary year we realized that the club would like to raise awareness of our activities and charitable giving.  I am reaching out to the Department of Journalism and Public Relations in the hope of attracting an intern for the 2017/2018 academic year.

The internship would be unpaid, but would offer a student a high degree of autonomy with two public relations campaigns and valuable community contacts. In addition, the national headquarters of Exchange Club is located in Toledo, OH, and a student would have exposure to a service club’s leadership at the highest level.  To get an idea of what Exchange does, here is the National website, http://www.nationalexchangeclub.org/.  Information about our local club can be found at http://www.bgexchangeclub.org/.

Below is a list of the responsibilities for the internship:

  • Newspaper briefs on upcoming speakers
  • Social Media Updates on Exchange activities and speakers
  • Public relations campaign for our scholarship giving and former recipients and finding out how it made a difference
  • Publicity for our Bowling Green High School and Penta Career Centers Student of the Month program
  • Publicity for projects we fund in the community such as the playground at Job and Family Services
  • Public relations campaign for the Positive Start Program for middle school students in April.  The club believes this is a powerful service to the community and could benefit from a dedicated campaign.  A description of Positive Start can be found here: http://preview.tinyurl.com/y8uedbwj

One requirement is that students would have to be available for lunch meetings on the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Stone Ridge Golf Club.  The lunch would be provided and transportation could also be provided if necessary, but it would be critical for the student to attend our meetings to better understand the club.
