The Academy Gold Rising Program is a talent development, diversity and inclusion initiative designed to enhance internship experiences under the Academy brand. The initiative ultimately helps cement, strengthen and clarify long-standing but independent efforts to address concerns of accessibility and opportunity for underrepresented communities throughout our country.
Gold Rising works in conjunction with various studios, industry suppliers and key organizations to create an eight (8) week summer educational and networking experience as the first part of a multi-tiered program. The summer provides an emphasis on high-quality talent to help college seniors, recent graduates & young professionals acquire the knowledge, skills and connections to achieve success as they navigate above-the-line and below-the-line full time careers in entertainment; while offering unprecedented and exclusive access to the industry through its more than 10,000 members.
How to Apply: The 2021 program runs from mid-June through mid-August 2021. Those interns who work directly for The Academy work a minimum of 20 hours per week. Hours vary for interns employed by participating companies. Applications Open: January 2021, Application Deadline: March 2021
