Community Newspaper 2018 Summer Internship Program for Students

The C.A. MacLean Foundation in conjunction with the Alberta Weekly Newspapers Association will be introducing an internship program for students looking to broaden their horizons in the newspaper industry. After a successful inaugural year, we are hoping to expand our reach and garner even more student interest in this highly beneficial program.  We are reaching out to schools across Alberta in hopes that they can assist us in getting this information out to their students for consideration, whether that be posting the brochure/application form to an internal bulletin board, sharing the link to the Internship Program on our website, or sharing the information with a student or instructor you may think would be interested. Any support with this would be greatly appreciated as we are hoping to reach as many students as possible to give them the opportunity to apply.

For the 2018 program year, the C.A. MacLean Foundation is sponsoring six minimum ten-week internships during the summer of 2018 for journalism students. The internship program will allow students to learn first-hand the importance of community journalism, having them work alongside the editors, reporters and photographers of the community newspapers in Alberta or Northwest Territories. It is the foundation’s hope that this inaugural program will carry-over and become an annual sponsorship, helping to cultivate the next generation of great journalists.

Students do not have to be a journalism or communications major to be eligible, though first consideration will be given to those academic streams. Students should be completing their first year of post-secondary education at minimum in order to be deemed eligible for the funded program. An application form must be completed in full and include both the student’s resume (referencing any part time work, internships, activities, scholarships/awards) and samples of work. Completion of the form and additional information does not constitute an application of acceptances into this program.

All of the information regarding the internship program can also be found on our website at

The student application deadline is Friday, December 1, 2017.


e-Writing Support is now available to MHC students and is available through Blackboard! When logging into Blackboard, there is a new “Organizations Catalog” module on the opening My Institution page with a Student Supports folder. If you click on the folder the e-Writing Support service is listed, and you can self-enroll from there. Once enrolled, you have access to submit your assignments to the writing specialist, Taryn, in Blackboard for comments. You will get the same service from Taryn that you would in drop-in, but with the option of an online medium. The e-support also includes links to the writing support webpage, the library’s APA/MLA guides page, and to the academic calendar for plagiarism definitions. Any questions about this service can be directed to Taryn herself.
