The John R. Wilhelm Foreign Correspondence Internship Program offers funding to students to help them obtain reporting experience abroad, typically for about a 90-day period.
The program is funded by endowed scholarships and has sent more than 280 journalism majors to approximately 35 countries since 1970.
Some countries where the 2012 recipients may intern include Niger, Israel, Senegal, Ukraine, Peru and the United States of America.
The recipients of the John R. Wilhelm Foreign Correspondence internships have until June 30, 2013 to begin using their funding.
