(updated on June 3rd 2020 by Vito Valera)

Students selected for this program will receive a scholarship amounting a yearly total of $ 7,900  per year (approximately $2,636 per quarter).

The   Evergreen Media Internship program provides advanced students a dynamic, hands-on work and learning experience in which they develop professional and academic skills in a highly collaborative media production environment, under the guidance of staff supervisors and a faculty sponsor. As a cohort, the interns strengthen leadership, collaboration, communication, organizational, and technical skills as a critical part of the Media Services team, supporting instruction, equipment and lab maintenance, oversight of media facilities, and campus productions. During fall, students will work 35 hours per week earning 14 credits as an Evergreen Media Intern in one of the following areas: Audio (2 interns), Video (2 interns), Production, and Instructional Media/Animation & Film. During winter and spring quarters, students work 30 hours per week earning 12 internship credits. 

This program also involves an academic component each quarter. The faculty sponsor will meet with students at least once a week to support continued skill development and academic work in media studies and production. Students do independent research into technologies and artists of their choice and will present their findings to the group. As they expand their practical and theoretical knowledge of media technologies and forms, interns will examine their own roles as producers, artists, teachers, and leaders through Academic Statement work and other reflective writing. During winter and spring quarters, students will have the opportunity to work on individual and/or collaborative creative projects supported through extensive critique processes. Fall internship work includes extensive training in all aspects of media production, so the academic component during fall is 2 credits (representing 5 hours of academic work per week). The winter quarter academic component is 4 credits (representing 10 hours of academic work per week). 

Faculty signature is required for internship registration!

Vito Valera is the Associate Director of Media Services and acts as the Evergreen Media Internship program coordinator; the faculty sponsor for 2020-2021 is Suree Towfighnia.
