Besides overall academic performance, criteria used to select ASME interns include:

  • Academic training in journalism (but students shouldn’t be afraid to apply for an ASME internship if their school doesn’t offer journalism courses or if they’re not majoring in journalism)
  • Experience in campus journalism, preferably as a reporter or editor on a newspaper, magazine or website
  • Previous internships or employment at city, regional or national newspapers, magazines or websites

Journalism departments and career-guidance offices are invited to recommend no more than two students for the Magazine Internship Program. (Students do not need to be nominated by a college or university to apply, but applicants recommended by journalism departments or career-guidance offices are given preference over students from the same school.) Letters of nomination should be included in each student’s application. To ensure geographic diversity, only one student is usually accepted from any one college or university.
