The NAFB Foundation Internship Program annually offers 10 $2,000 internship grants to member stations and networks. Each grant helps provide students an on-the-job experience in agriculture broadcasting from the live reports covering agriculture information and activities to a look outside of the studio to the business model of a broadcast entity.

If your entity is selected to receive an Internship Grant, the Foundation also will provide registration and up to $500 for your intern’s expenses to attend the NAFB National Convention in November.

Administration of this program is coordinated by NAFB staff. For more information, please email Mary Reder at or call (816) 431-4032, extension 101.
