The Television Academy Foundation’s Diversity and Inclusion Unscripted Internship Program, which officially launched on Tuesday, will take place over a paid eight-week period in Los Angeles during the summer. Interns also will receive weekly online evening professional development, including panels with television industry leaders, customized seminars on building your brand and navigating the job market ahead, and access to Foundation alumni as they build their career. Remote internships will be offered during summer 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Five students will be selected by Television Academy members and the Television Academy Foundation’s board of directors to participate in the program every year. Eligible students from Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura, and San Bernardino counties may apply for the 2021 Diversity and Inclusion
