How do I Get Involved?
Below you will find all the ways to help us investigate the cost and quality of internships for academic credit at U.S. schools. This tool is powered completely by contributions from our readers. We have a variety of ways for you to take action, depending on who you are and what information we already have about your school. Find out below how you can get involved, or click here to learn more about the project.
Step 1: Find and select your school
Step 2: Find and select your major
Pick a school to see which majors we have.
Step 3: Tell Us About Internship Courses
If you've interned for credit in this major, you can write a review about your experience. If you know of an internship course that's not in our database, you can add it. You can do both of these things on your school and major page.Take me there !
Become an Official Project Partner
Official project partners are on-campus student publications that want to help us scrutinize the cost and quality of for-credit internships at their school. Professors teaching journalism classes are also encouraged to sign up.
What will you have to do?
- Research and report basic information about your university and three departments or majors of your choice. All the questions are here.
- Dedicate at least one reporter to digging around for a story on internships for credit at your school.
- Embed our project partner badge on your publication’s website, along with a short post about the project and our questionnaire.
What does my publication get?
ProPublica reaches hundreds of thousands of readers per month, and is frequently cited in national media. Becoming a project partner means we’ll link to your publication on our site, and feature the stories you publish about internships at your school.
Most importantly, you will be part of making an impact. The goal of this investigation is to bring transparency to internships, to ensure students aren’t being exploited. Your organization can be a part of this national effort by helping us research, report and publicize this important information.
