Scholarship: Emma L. Bowen Foundation For Minority Interests In Media

Calling all Juniors!!! This scholarship's for you!
Please apply immediately. Please contact the Parent Center if you require any assistance.

Emma L. Bowen Foundation For Minority Interests In Media

Established by the media industry to increase access to permanent job opportunities for minority students. The Foundation's program is unlike other intern programs in that students work for a partner company during summers and school breaks from the end of their junior year in high school until they graduate from college.

During that five-year period, students learn many aspects of corporate operations and develop company-specific skills. Corporations guide and develop minority students with the option of permanent placement upon completion of their college degree.

Deadline:March 31, 2008

Award Amount:$2,250 plus internship experience
