James B. Pendleton Award for Student Summer Internships


Pendleton Summer Internship awards are available to academically qualified BS or BFA students in the Cinema, Photography, and Media Arts major (all concentrations) and Writing for Film, Television and Emerging Media major to supplement costs associated with carrying out a departmentally approved credit-bearing summer internship. Award applications will be accepted until May 15th (late applications not accepted). The maximum award amount is $1,000.

Selection for the award is based on a student’s demonstrated high academic and creative performance, and the relevance of the internship to his or her academic and career goals.
