Montana Newspaper Foundation awards 2020 internship grants

Internships offer great opportunities for students with a passion for the newspaper industry and our Montana Newspaper Association professional members. Students gain relevant firsthand experience and use their internship experience to secure good jobs and our MNA members build relationships that may lead to job candidates.

The Montana Newspaper Foundation is pleased to announce the award of three $1,500 grants to partially defray the expense of a paid intern at member newspapers during 2020.
