Is This Program For You?

You should be enrolled in a college or university program. If you are enrolled in a technical college or school in broadcast engineering or electronics and data processing disciplines you may be considered for an internship. Additionally, you must be able to commit to a semester length or summer program. Limited opportunities may exist for internships for interested high school students. This program does not supercede existing arrangements between certain institutions and ETV regional stations for short-term (weekly) assignments.
