Grant opens opportunities for UC journalism students

July 16, 2020

Through an innovation grant from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Arts and Sciences, the department of Journalism is offering two new internships with community-based and minority-owned news outlets. The funding supports internships at urban news organizations which have traditionally been able only to accept unpaid interns. It also gives UC journalism students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in reporting, photography, social media and more at local news outlets. With the novel coronavirus ravaging communities, and Black Lives Matter protests hitting the streets spurred in part by the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May, the timing is right to support local voices in the media, says department head and Journalism professor Jeff Blevins. “Your larger news outlets…aim to serve a broad geography—all of the people in a city and the region—including those who may not be on the front lines of what is happening within certain areas of the city,” Blevins says. “But those communities within the city which have real skin in the game—their voices need to be elevated now more than ever.”
