The Ohio Center for Investigative Journalism, aka Eye on Ohio, is an independent, non-profit news organization based in northeast Ohio. Our mission includes educating the next generation of journalists. We offer one-semester internship opportunities for students at colleges and universities in Ohio.

Interns will receive training and experience in interviewing, researching and writing. They will work with OCIJ staff to produce high-impact investigative journalism.

In-depth and computer-assisted reporting skills are preferred. Web, audio and video skills are desirable.
