The Chicago Headline Club Foundation, a charitable organization created by the local professional chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, offers two $5,000 scholarships for journalism students doing unpaid internships in the Chicago area.

Chicago Headline Club Foundation scholarship recipients are selected by journalism not-for-profits. Each college student serves an unpaid internship of 21 or more hours a week in professional newsroom in the Chicago area.

• Student must intern with a Chicago-area media organization (print, broadcast or online).
• Applicant must be a current college student (no recent graduates).
• Internship must be at least 21 hours a week for at least 8 weeks.
• Internship must be unpaid and the media outlet must be able to verify internship.

The Headline Club established the intern scholarships in 1999.
