CHCI-Telemundo Scholar Intern Program
The CHCI Scholar-Intern Programs are designed to allow students to not only receive monetary support for their education, but also gain hands-on experience in their chosen field through an internship.
The CHCI-Telemundo Scholar Intern program is designed to allow sophomore and junior undergraduate (B.A./B.S.) students to not only receive monetary support for their education, but also gain hands-on experience in a media related field through a 10-week internship during summer 2015.
During Summer 2015, CHCI and Telemundo will award up to three internships in Telemundo's News Department. Please click here for a full description of the internship placement.
The CHCI-Telemundo scholar intern program requires a 10 week paid internship in which Telemundo directly places you in their Miami, FL Telemundo news station. If selected, you MUST complete the internship in order to receive scholarship funds. Upon completion of the internship, individuals receive a $1,000 stipend in addition to their scholarship award.
Please Note -- You must reside in the greater Miami, FL metropolitan area during Summer 2015 to be eligible for the scholar-intern program, as Telemundo and CHCI do not offer housing.

CHCI scholarships provide recipients with a one-time scholarship of $2,500 to pursue an undergraduate degree.
Scholarship awards are intended to provide assistance with tuition, room and board, textbooks, and other educational expenses associated with college enrollment.
In an effort to ensure the progress of scholarship recipients and encourage completion of the postsecondary program, each undergraduate level scholarship award is divided over the number of years required for graduation. For Example:
If you are a sophomore during the 2014-2015 school year (graduating in 2017), you will be awarded $1,250.00 in fall 2015 (after you've completed the internship) and $1,250.00 in fall 2016.
If you are a junior during the 2014-2015 school year (graduating in 2016), you will be awarded $2,500.00 in fall 2015 (after you've completed the internship).
Students continue to receive annual disbursements as long as they maintain good academic standing and complete the requirements of their internship. CHCI manages the disbursement of the scholarships; an annual check is sent directly to recipients.
