Staff writers: intelligent, hardworking journalists who have something to say
Social media strategists: creatives who maintain the brand by posting to socia media, planning events, and hosting fundraisers

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

The Summer Fellowship Program is the cornerstone program of the IRTS Foundation. Often referred to as a “media boot camp,” this highly selective program teaches a talented group of up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an all-expense-paid internship in New York City, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice.

The IRTS Summer Fellowship Program has had a key role in launching the careers of top professionals in the media business for more than 45 years.

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 Fellowship. Throughout the summer, Fellows also learn how to successfully network by attending industry events and by conducting informational interviews with executives.

Participants emerge from this program with a strong understanding of our entire business, along with carefully honed skills in career planning, resume writing, and interviewing. Fellows are then able to reinforce or redefine specific career goals before starting a career within the media industry.

Those selected for the Fellowship receive:
  • Round trip travel to and from NYC (air, train, or driving mileage reimbursement)
  • Housing at a downtown Manhattan university dormitory in a shared suite setting.
