A long history of serving journalism
MDDC Press Foundation

​The MDDC Press Association started in 1908 as the Maryland Press Association for weekly newspapers. Forty years later, daily newspapers began joining.

Delaware news media came aboard in 1961 when  the organization merged with the Delmarva Press Association and became Maryland-Delaware Press Association. When D.C. newspapers joined in 1968, the name changed for the last time. Today, the association’s membership is broad, including daily and weekly newspapers, online-only publications, TV stations and magazines in Maryland, Delaware and the District.

And yes, it offers paid internships
MDDC interns

​MDDC sponsors interns through its foundation.

The association supports its members through legislative advocacy, FOIA/PIA support, contests, and, through its independent foundation, internships.

UD students are eligible to apply for paid, eight-week internships if they have had at least one journalism course OR have experience on a student or community publication. Interns will need a car. Intern assignments can be with a daily or weekly news media organization in the Maryland, Delaware, and D.C. region. Assignment to a particular organization will be subject to the approval of the editor.
