Deadline to apply for Scripps Next Top Intern competition Sept. 19
The ninth annual Scripps Day at Ohio University will take place Tuesday, Oct. 14, and will feature a new opportunity for Scripps College of Communication students to compete to become Scripps Next Top Intern, a designation that carries a $3,500 stipend.
“We’re excited to offer this new opportunity for students on Scripps Day this year,” said Scripps College of Communication Dean Scott Titsworth.
“This type of event benefits not only the students who will be competing but those who attend the event. It’s actually a great way for students to get interview experience and to learn how to present themselves to potential employers.”
Students selected by the Scripps Howard Foundation and E.W. Scripps Company will have the opportunity to impress a panel of judges while competing for a scholarship. Students will be judged on professional appearance, articulation, oral response, confidence, résumé and work samples. This event is open to all Scripps College of Communication undergraduate students.
The winner of the Scripps Next Top Intern competition will win a $3,500 stipend and a trophy from the Scripps Howard Foundation.
Interested students must apply by 5 p.m. Sept. 19. To apply, please send:
Applications must be sent to Karen Peters, Internship & Students Services Specialist, firstname.lastname@example.org, 119 Schoonover Center.
The full schedule for Scripps Day will be available soon. This event celebrates the partnership between the Scripps College of Communication and the Scripps Howard Foundation, which announced a $15 million gift to the college in 2006. The gift supports a wide variety of programs and initiatives involving diversity, technology, teaching fellowships, scholarships, internships, visiting professional residencies and more. As a result of the historic gift, the college was renamed the Scripps College of Communication.
