The Emma L. Bowen Foundation for Minority Interests in Media is currently recruiting nationwide for multi-year, paid internship positions at media companies across the U.S.

Minority students who are graduating high school seniors or college freshmen, have at least a 3.0 GPA, an interest in the media industry, and plan to attend a four-year college are eligible to apply to the program. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal residents, and speak and write English fluently. A list of cities where the internships are available and other information about the program can be found on the Foundation’s web site at www.emmabowenfoundation.com.

The Emma L. Bowen Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to prepare minority students for careers in the media.  The Foundation will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in 2014!   The program focuses on scholastic achievement, direct work experience and professional development. Students work each summer until graduation from college and earn both salaries and matching scholarship funds. Over a period four years, the students experience numerous aspects of corporate operations and develop company-specific skills with the goal of full-time employment after graduation. The Foundation provides additional professional development opportunities at its annual summer conferences, Link Mentoring program and New Media and Technology program.   Approximately 250 students currently participate as interns with 40 partner companies, including some of the nation’s largest and most influential media firms and vendors in broadcast television, cable, and film.  We anticipate approximately 50 to 60 new opportunities in 2014 in cities across the United States.  We invite interested students to visit our web site for more information and an application.
