The International Radio & Television Society Foundation has set a Dec. 1 deadline for its Summer Fellowship Program.
The IRTS Summer Fellowship Program teaches up-and-coming communicators the realities of the media industry and business world through a nine-week, expense-paid fellowship, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice.
Fellows gain full-time, “real world” experience at New York-based media companies. In addition, the fellowship provides the opportunity to network with industry professionals, take related field trips, and attend panels, lectures and group discussions.
The Summer Fellowship Program is competitive. Students must be college juniors, seniors or graduate students at the time of application. For detailed eligibility information, log on to our website www.irts.org and follow the link to “College Programs.”
COST: Travel, housing and living allowance included.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: December 1, 2010

This diversity initiative is designed to give graduating seniors a jumpstart on the management track by providing customized sales training, in addition to the regular features of the Fellowship Program.
