Dow Jones Fund
selects Elon student


Ellis Harman, a junior majoring in Journalism and Corporate Communications, has been awarded a select Dow Jones Newspaper Fund copy editing internship for summer 2004. More than 600 students completed the editing test and application form required to be considered for the 105 editing positions available this summer.

The program will pay to send Harman to spend the end of May at a two-week editing seminar at Penn State University, followed by her travel to Santa Cruz, Calif., where she will work in a paid editing internship at the Santa Cruz Sentinel. The paper, part of the Ottaway chain, is geographically situated between the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Jose Mercury News. Interesting trivia: The Sentinel is one of the few papers in the U.S. with a beat reporter assigned to cover surfing.

Upon her successful completion of the internship, DJNF will award Harman a $1,000 scholarship.

The Dow Jones copy editing test - a major element in the application process for DJNF internships - is administered at Elon University annually in October. "Other Elon students did quite well on the editing test," said Jan Maressa of DJNF, "and it is our hope that students with an interest in copy editing will continue to apply."
