Our 10-week, paid summer internship program is open to journalism students preparing for their junior or senior year of college. You will work out of our offices in either Washington, D.C., or St. Petersburg, Fla. (Remote work is possible only if COVID-19 restrictions are still in effect.)

As a summer intern at PolitiFact during the run-up to the 2022 midterm elections, you’ll hold politicians accountable for their words and promises. You’ll deconstruct the rhetoric of PACs and pundits. You’ll debunk social media hoaxes and myths. You’ll supply context and nuance to daily news coverage through fact-checks and explainers. You’ll research, analyze, report, write and publish. You’ll be a force for truth, transparency and democracy.

If you’d like to join the team, please complete the application, attaching your resume, cover letter and three samples of your work in journalism. The deadline to apply for a summer 2022 internship is December 15, 2021.
