2015 Summer Fellowship

When: May 31 – August 1, 2015
Where: New York, New York
Application Deadline: Sunday, November 2, 2014, midnight EST

Expense-Paid Opportunity: Travel, housing, and living allowance included.

Eligibility: Extremely competitive. Students must be college juniors, seniors, or graduate students as of April 2015.

Accomplished students from all majors (including math, computer science, business, marketing, communications, etc.) are encouraged to apply.

The Summer Fellowship Program, the most notable student out-reach effort of IRTS, teaches up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an expense-paid fellowship, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice. Each year college juniors, seniors and graduate students are selected nationwide to participate in the nine-week Summer Fellowship Program.

The Program begins with an extensive one-week orientation to broadcasting, cable, advertising, and interactive media. Fellows have a rare opportunity to question industry professionals at panels, lectures, and group discussions. They also take related field trips and learn career planning, networking and interviewing skills by attending industry social functions.

Following this first week, Fellows gain full-time “real world” experience at New York-based media corporations to which each is assigned for the duration of the nine-week Fellowship. Fellows are then able to reinforce or redefine specific career goals before settling into a permanent job in the electronic media industry.
