Microinternships update

A quick update on our summer microinternships: We got 166 applications from six countries. I’ve read them all, and there’s some real gold in there. And I have maybe five spots.

What I’m trying to say is that a bunch of great applicants are going to hear less-than-great news from me in the next week or two. They shouldn’t interpret that as anything other than the fact they had some terrific competition. There are good reasons to be optimistic about the future of journalism in all those PDF resumes and cover letters.
