Public TV Internship Seeks Young Native American Journalists

The nonprofit Vision Maker Media is partnering American Indian and Alaska Native college students with Public Television stations for summer internships, a great opportunity for Native Americans to get a toehold in a media landscape traditionally bereft of Native perspective.

The nonprofit, which receives funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, will select undergraduate and graduate students to complete a 10-week paid internship at a Public Television station in the US. The program is meant to further develop a strong tradition of digital storytelling. Interns can also be located at Vision Maker Media's offices at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

To apply, students should submit a cover letter, resume, work samples, an official school transcript and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or former supervisor. To find more information and apply, go to visionmakermedia.org/intern. Public Television stations interested in hosting an intern should contact visionmaker@unl.edu.
