The NAB Education Foundation (NABEF) has announced a new paid internship program designed to reinforce the broadcast industry's diversity efforts by increasing the number of women and minorities entering the broadcast engineering field. College seniors and recent college graduates who have demonstrated an interest in working with digital audio and video, computer technology, HD radio or HDTV are encouraged to apply.
NABEF is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the public interest in supporting and advocating: education and training programs, strategies to increase diversity, initiatives stressing the importance of the First Amendment, community service, philanthropy and timely broadcasting issues.
NABEF will select 10 students or recent graduates to participate in the program. Interns will attend NAB2007 in Las Vegas where they will participate in a one-day session and tour the exhibit show floor. The participants will also be provided with an eight-week paid internship in engineering and technology at a radio or TV station during the summer of 2007.
The application deadline is March 1.
