Upon successful completion of the internship, the intern will receive a $500 scholarship.

APPLICATION PROCESS

All applicants must:

  • Submit a cover letter stating how the Haas internship will help meet their career goals
  • Submit two letters of recommendation
  • Submit clean, black and white copies on 8.5 x 11-inch paper of published news articles

Folks, I’m pleased to say a Shorthorn staff member has been selected as the Buster Haas intern for three of the last four years. Most recently, Dylan Bradley (Shorthorn projects editor and current Star-Telegram intern) spent the summer at the Longview News-Journal covering general assignments. Before Dylan, Johnathan Silver (current criminal justice reporter for the Texas Tribune) and Monica Nagy (current crime reporter for the Star-Telegram) were Buster Haas interns. Johnathan worked for the Victoria Advocate, and Monica worked at the Bryan-College Station Eagle.

I hope you’ll consider applying. Find details and the application here.
