FMS Winternships are intensive internships that offer students immersive experiences in prestigious media organizations across the country. Winternships provide valuable real-world training in various media sectors, such as filmmaking, television, radio, advertising, marketing, public relations, digital media, and journalism. Participants engage in special projects, shadow professionals, and actively participate in the daily operations of their assigned sites.

Winternships take place over winter break, typically last 1-2 weeks, and may take place in-person, hybrid, or remotely. Some Winternships may also be offered for course credit.

Applicants must meet specific academic criteria, have relevant coursework in media studies, and submit well-researched and thought-provoking essays tailored to each Winternship site. Sites are listed below - you may choose 1-2 specific sites to apply to. Please read the descriptions carefully to learn about what each site is offering before choosing and submitting your application. 

You do not need to be an FMS major or minor to apply.
