Once you have been active in the network for a full year and have snagged yourself a job or internship in entertainment, you’ll be invited to apply for a CIE Fellowship. The yearlong fellowship offers the professional development and life skills training to help you succeed at whatever career path you choose. We also provide a $5,000 stipend to help cover your expenses as you complete your internship program.
The CIE Fellowship will give you the support you need to get your start. CIE Fellows will be matched with industry mentors and attend monthly online training sessions where you can ask questions, network, and share your experiences. You will meet and collaborate with other young people working at entertainment companies. Industry leaders will also offer guidance and advice for your chosen profession.
The final requirement of the CIE Fellowship is to pay it forward. Graduating fellows must agree to serve as CIE mentors for a full year. Fellows and Mentors who show particular promise will be invited to further engage with participating entertainment companies and CIE partner organizations.
