Emma L. Bowen Foundation for Minority Interests in Media – Emma Bowen Foundation Fellowship Program
The Emma Bowen Foundation is building a more diverse media industry. We recruit promising students of color and place them in multi-year paid internships at some of the nation’s leading media and technology companies, provide the media and tech industries with a pipeline of young talent and emerging leadership, and advocate for best practices in diverse hiring, retention, and advancement.
We believe that diversity is important in all aspects of the media industry, from the correspondents in front of the camera to the media sales departments bringing in revenue to the coders and engineers who are changing the way we access and understand content, and prepare our students for careers in the Business of Media, Content of Media, and Innovation of Media.
Whether you’re interested in being a producer, a journalist, a web developer, an engineer, a business executive, a PR agent, or in any other career in the media or tech industry, the Emma Bowen Fellowship is here to help you get your start.
If selected, you will have the opportunity to develop valuable skills and network with industry professionals each summer during college. Not only will you earn a salary, but you will have the opportunity to get additional money to pay for college expenses.
