EM Internship Application
(updated on 05/16/2019)
Students selected for this program will receive a scholarship amounting a yearly total of $ 7,900 deliverable per quarter (approximately $2,636 per quarter).
The Evergreen Media Internship 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. Per quarter, the program includes 12 internship credits in Animation and Film, Instructional Media, Audio and Music Technology, Video Production, or Production, and 4 academic credits in which students pursue creative or research projects that parallel their work as interns and attend regular career development workshops. As students grow into professionals, they examine their own roles as producers, artists, technicians, teachers, and leaders through weekly reflective writing. Interns meet regularly with staff and faculty to share skills, seminar on readings and screenings, peer-review their writing, and collaborate on projects, productions, and cross-training in all Media Services areas.
The internship is housed within a 3-quarter, full-time academic program that requires a full academic year commitment, and averages a total of 40 hours of on-campus work per academic week, inclusive of internship and academic credit hours.
Mélanie Vito Valera is the Associate Director of Media Services and acts as the Evergreen Media Internship program coordinator; the faculty sponsor for 2019-2020 is Laurie Meeker. Interested students are strongly encouraged to inquire in Winter or early Spring Quarter, and meet with faculty sponsor and staff at the Spring Academic Fair on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019.
