Intern scholarships

Students hired for Times internships are eligible to apply for intern scholarships offered through the Tampa Bay Times Fund.


The scholarships are worth up to $3,000 for returning full-time undergraduates and up to $1,500 for returning full-time graduate students. Applications will be made available to interns during their summer experience at the Times.

Peggy Peterman scholarship for minority students
