We are India’s only non-profit media platform driven by students

Newshound India Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation incorporated in November 2019, has been facilitating mass communication students through round-the-year remote training, internships and paid freelance opportunities for student journalists, producers and content creators. Our team comprises professionals who have, in the past, been associated closely with major media organisations and young students from educational institutions around the country.
The programme assists, trains, mentors, and provides internships to students from all years - from the moment they join the course till 3 months after graduation - on a daily basis. Partner institutions get a special mention and logo branding on all content created by their students. During the course of the year, partner institutions are extended merit-based advertising and marketing through more than 5,000 pieces of content - print, video and photo - created by their students across multiple platforms.

Our Founder

Having learnt from and worked with leading mainstream print and broadcast spaces including The Hindu, NDTV, NewsX, Republic TV and Times Now, 30-year-old Arjun Samar Mahendran has successfully traversed multiple departments and mustered significant editorial, production and creative insight.
Being given the elusive opportunity to be in the thick of things at a young age, Arjun has realised that the future of media may be in the doldrums. Arjun set up the Foundation at 28 years, in a bid to secure the future of journalism in India.
