Universal Music Group Launches HBCU Student Internship Program


College Students looking to pursue a career in the music industry will have more opportunity to do so.

Universal Music Group’s Task Force for Meaningful Change (UMG TFMC)   is partnering with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF)  to launch an internship program for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Beginning June 1, 2021, Universal Music Group HBCU TMCF will offer paid summer internships to provide developmental pathways for black students seeking careers in the music industry.  Selection will be made from the country’s 107 Historically Black Colleges and Universities that include currently enrolled sophomores, juniors and seniors .  Up to 50 current students will be eligible to participate in the program. The selected students will be offered summer internship opportunities to work at Universal Music Group’s New York and Los Angeles based business subject to covid-19 public health guidelines. Housing and travel expenses funding will be provided by Universal Music Group.

With fewer internships available today because of the current pandemic, this is a great opportunity for eligible students looking to purse a career in the music industry and take advantage of the expert knowledge and invaluable experience that will be offered.

Apply HERE, the deadline is December 31,2020, at 11:59 pm ET.
