Gannett Summer In-Residence

Written by:


Our new summer In-Residence program is designed to bring together innovative, creative students to define and develop “next-generation” products. Students will complete a product incubator “school” at Gannett Headquarters in McLean, VA over the course of eight weeks this summer.

We’ll put students on small teams and give them the freedom to envision and create new products, primarily targeted to younger demographics. Each team will be assigned a digital veteran as an advisor and mentor. At the conclusion of the program, students will “pitch” their product prototypes to leadership at Gannett for potential go-to-market implementation and outreach to 110 million people each month.

Or, if you really are the best of the best, a job offer.

Students will receive a competitive monthly salary, as well as housing in or around the DC metro area, access to leadership at Gannett, and social activities to get to know their fellow program participants.
