Sponsor an Intern or Be a Mentor

We would love to make a connection with you if you are in a position to sponsor an intern or are willing to share information about your professional experience with a current student. By helping students explore the field of journalism with practical experience before graduation or by sharing your real-world wisdom, you are making a major contribution to Journalism and to UMass. If you can sponsor an intern or are willing to be a mentor, please let us know by emailing Donna Vanasse.
