Free Media Fellowship Opportunity for Upcoming Graduates

We are delighted to invite recent or soon-to-be graduates to apply for a special summer program that will give an intensive, weeklong “boot camp” experience in media sales. In partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation, the Cronkite School is hosting the NABEF Media Sales Institute June 6-13, 2017. 

As a participant in the Media Sales Institute, your graduates will be immersed in learning electronic media advertising sales techniques. The curriculum is designed to provide an entrée into media sales for talented students of diverse backgrounds. MSI trains the candidates in radio, television, cable, print, digital and Internet sales.

The experience will culminate with presentations, critiques, networking and interview opportunities with dozens of national media companies. More than 75 percent of the participants are hired by media companies two weeks to one month after their participation in the program.

MSI fellows will receive admission to the institute, including travel, housing and meals.

The application process is simple and includes a cover letter, resume and references. More information can be found at

Application materials must be submitted online by Friday, March 31, 2017. The application can be found at If you have any questions, please contact me at  or (602) 496.9415. We look forward to your participation in this exciting program.
