Intern Fund

For more than 30 years, the High Country News Intern Program has been a vital incubator of environmental journalism in the American West. Our interns spend six months at the High Country News headquarters in Paonia, Colorado, immersed in a program described by many as an “intense graduate course” and a “journalism boot camp.” As members of the editorial team, they learn how to research, analyze, synthesize, write and (of course) rewrite stories about complex Western issues. Support this program by making a tax-deductible donation today and help seed the West with the great journalists, critical thinkers and leaders of tomorrow!

Invest today, in the Future of the West!

The High Country News internship not only got me started in journalism, but it opened my eyes and ears to the power of reporting and photography.  Most importantly, the rigors of HCN's boot camp essentially taught me how to write.  An HCN internship is one of the greatest ways for new or old journalists to not only hone their reporting skills, but to objectively cover natural resource issues in all of their complexities.

Join me in supporting this important program.

To the readers of High Country News,

The American West has been an integral part of my life, and my heart, for all of my days.  If, like me, you care about the West, and care about preserving both a way of life that still matters to the soul of our nation -- as well as some of the last great places on earth -- then you owe High Country News a debt of gratitude. Their work is more important now, than ever. High Country News is a great investment.  Please do what you can to support them today with your tax-deductible gift.


Sincerely,

Dear Reader:

Tom Bell didn’t found High Country News on a shoestring. To Tom, back in 1970 or 1971 or 1972, a shoestring would have been luxury.

Tom’s High Country News wiped out those straight-line boundaries so that we could see a 1 million-square-mile landscape that is among the most extraordinary on earth.
