Texas Managing Editors

TAPME looking for spots for interns

The Texas Associated Press Managing Editors board has authorized up to five Buster Haas summer internships for minority student journalists. The interns will work 10 weeks.

The next step is to identify where the interns will work. The program is open to Texas newspapers with a circulation of no more than 30,000. The newspaper must provide a solid internship experience for the students selected for the program.

There is no out-of-pocket to the newspaper. TAPME furnishes a $1,000 living expense grant to the intern along with a $3,000 stipend paid through the newspaper over the period of the internship.

Editors interested in participating in the internship program should contact Nick Jimenez, Haas committee chairman and Corpus Christi Caller-Times editorial page editor, at jimenezn@caller.com or 361-886-3787.
