The Summer Fellowship Program is the cornerstone program of the IRTS Foundation. Often referred to as a “media boot camp,” this highly selective program teaches a talented group of up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an all-expense-paid internship in New York City, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice.
This nine-week expense-paid opportunity begins with a comprehensive one-week orientation to cable, broadcasting, advertising, and digital media. Fellows have a rare opportunity to question a stellar line-up of industry leaders at company visits, panel discussions, and negotiation simulations. Following this first week, Fellows gain full-time “real world” experience at New York-based media corporations to which each is assigned for the duration of the Fellowship. Throughout the summer, Fellows also learn how to successfully network by attending industry events and by conducting informational interviews with executives.
Participants emerge from this program with a strong understanding of our entire business, along with carefully honed skills in career planning, resume writing, and interviewing. Fellows are then able to reinforce or redefine specific career goals before starting a career within the media industry.

The Second City has been bringing the funny for over 50 years, but here’s the short version.
We began as a small comedy theater, and have grown to become today’s leading brand in improv-based sketch comedy. With a variety of theaters, training centers and full-time, touring ensembles, you can find us all over the world. We’ve also taken improv off the stage, expanding our business to include collaborations with corporate clients, and television and film productions. And we have more than a handful of successful Second City alum that we aren’t too modest to mention, like Tina Fey, Chris Farley, Bill Murray, and Keegan-Michael Key.
