A learning experience like no other.

The DCTV internship provides college students an opportunity to gain real-world experience and further develop professional and practical skills in various areas that include broadcast television production, as well as media outreach and public relations.

“I used to be bad at time management. Seeing how well the producers, editors and camera people work together helped me structure my time more wisely.”

Jeremiah Quarles, former DCTV Intern

Gain valuable work experience that complements your educational goals, while developing the skills you need to pursue employment in the media and communications industries.



The DCTV capacity building grant program offers eligible nonprofits an array of benefits that build organizational communications and storytelling capability and provides an ongoing presence on cable television. We designed these grants to offer training and expert guidance to the nonprofit community, which enables you to robustly expand your impact within the DC community.

“Grant Level” is the amount of money your organization contributes to receive the grant. The grant term is initially one year and requires a very small organizational match. DCTV will provide documentation so that you can appropriately record “in-kind” services in your financial records. Grants may be extended or renewed with DCTV approval.
