The Emma L. Bowen Foundation for Minority Interests in Media invites you to recommend talented ethnic minority students for a spectacular work/study program in the media industry. Our multi-year program offers students the opportunity for invaluable work experience, mentoring, and financial assistance.
The mission of the Emma L. Bowen Foundation is to expand ethnic minority representation in the media industry. To that end, the Foundation and its corporate sponsors have developed a program that focuses on excellence through training and education. Selected students join a distinguished group of scholars currently working at media companies across the country.
Partner companies hire students to work every summer until college graduation, providing both an hourly wage and matching dollars towards college expenses. Qualified candidates must be ethnic minority, college freshman, have, at minimum, a 3.0 Cumulative G.P.A., and an interest in varying aspects of the media (business, technical, journalism, creative).
