Summer Intern - Reach Honorship
Warner Bros. Entertainment GroupBurbank, CA
Full Time Unpaid Internship
PLEASE NOTE: Only LA County high school seniors are eligible to apply. No other applications will be reviewed.
Since 2005, Warner Bros. has awarded Reach Honorships, internship-scholarship packages, to graduating high school seniors passionate about the business of entertainment. Warner Bros. has a long history of supporting youth enrichment, ranging from educational programs to mentoring relationships to career opportunities. Through the Warner Bros. Reach program, up to four outstanding Burbank and L.A. County students are awarded Honorships each year that include a scholarship and four full-time paid internships at the company during four consecutive summers while enrolled in college. Successful Reach program graduates will be eligible for full-time positions at Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. Honorships will be awarded annually to graduating seniors from Burbank and L.A. County high schools. Each cash scholarship will be for $5,000, disbursed annually in equal amounts of $1,250 over four years. Applicants must have (1) a passion for a career in the business of entertainment; (2) effective verbal and written communication skills; and (3) a minimum GPA of 3.0 upon graduation. The funds may only be used toward the tuition and related expenses of an accredited four-year college or university. Disbursement of funds will be made directly to the school once the Honorship winner is enrolled and annually thereafter for three years, provided a GPA of 3.0 is maintained. Careers in the business realm of the entertainment industry range from traditional business functions, such as finance, human resources, operations, marketing, and communications, to more technical or creative roles such as post-production and sound editing.
In addition, the winner will have the opportunity to receive four (4) consecutive, paid summer internships at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank while in college, beginning with the summer immediately following high school graduation. The Honorship recipient will be contacted by Warner Bros. each spring to determine which department or area of the Studio would most suit him/her during the upcoming summer.
Please note relatives of Warner Bros. employees are NOT eligible to participate in the Reach program.
Applications must be completed online by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, March 11, 2019. Short-listed applicants will be asked to complete a brief interview prior to the final decision. The winners will be notified in April. For more information, please e-mail Reach@WarnerBros.com.
