The Louis Carr Internship Foundation
Virtual Communications Internship
The Louis Carr Internship Foundation (LCIF) provides up to 12 paid internships in communications to undergraduate students of color during the summer immediately following their freshman, sophomore, or junior year of college.
To ensure more minority representation Louis Carr, President of Media Sales, BET Networks, structured the LCIF intern program with a two-fold mission. First, LCIF internships would give highly motivated minority students who could not afford to take non-paying summer internships a chance to get career-building experiences in top communication companies while earning needed money for college. Second, the LCIF internship program would help companies to identify, recruit and maintain a more multicultural workforce.
Mr. Carr has been a long-time supporter of Boys Hope Girls Hope and encourages Boys Hope Girls Hope collegians to apply. LCIF has partnered with a variety of leading companies such as: BET Networks, Burrell Communications, CNN, Fluent360, McDonald’s Corporation, Walton Isaacson, We Are Unlimited, and Viacom.
The 2022 application is open, and closes on April 1st. On April 20th, LCIF will announce the summer interns on their website. Collegians applying should let James Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org) know. Applications should reflect that the collegian is a participant in Boys Hope Girls Hope.
