This year, we had nearly 100 highly qualified applicants for this competitive program—which “sends” Winterns to media organizations throughout the country. Given the pandemic, we adapted the program to a remote-only format and created both “full” and “mini” opportunities. Students at full Winternships will remotely attended meetings, participated in projects, shadowed employees, and learned about the industry over a series of weeks. Students at mini Winternships will attended 3 or 4 remote meetings with professional at their sites, attained one-on-one career and resume advice, and gained insights into the field.
We are so grateful to our industry partners for helping us mold this new Winternship model during these difficult times. Thank you to the following sites for providing remote internships:
Glass Entertainment Group
United Talent Agency
WNET-Amanpour & Company
Again, congratulations to our 32 Winterns and to the many students who took the time to apply to the program. We know this application takes work and we admire your commitment. We encourage everyone to apply to the program again next year!
