We would like to thank you for applying for the HBCU in LA Internship Program. Our host companies have made their final selections for our inaugural 2017 Summer interns. All selected finalists received verbal and/or offer letters prior to this website announcement! If you are among those who have interviewed with BET or received a notice that you are still being considered by one of our Industry Partners, you may not have been notified as they are still in the process of making their final decisions.

Amid the high competition, regrettably, we were not able to accommodate all of the talented students interested in the program. If you were not selected but are still interested in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry, please consider applying again next year!

We are honored to have been placed on your list of internship program choices and appreciate the time you spent creating a thoughtful and competitive application.

We wish you great success in your future endeavors and a great summer!

The EICOP Selection Committee.

Thank you for allowing us to share with you THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY COLLEGE OUTREACH PROGRAM (EICOP)!

What is EICOP?

This unique, educational, recruitment and diversity program is a bi-annual national college tour of the top Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as well as an outreach to diverse student groups on the campuses of non-HBCUs across the country. It is a 21st Century Pipeline Development Program that delivers a rare inside look at the culture and environment of the industry while equipping students with the tools and resources necessary to succeed in this highly competitive environment. EICOP is proud to have major entertainment studios and networks as partners in this innovative diversity outreach program. Our Industry Partners have committed to actively recruit and develop students who have been traditionally underrepresented when it comes to internships and other employment opportunities. We are calling this ground breaking event, “Diversity in Action.”


To be the conduit that bridges the gap between top qualified diverse candidates and the desire and commitment of the entertainment industry to develop a culturally and ethnically diverse workforce. This targeted outreach program educates and recruits the best and brightest for work in this multi-faceted industry. We will continue to enhance and achieve our mission by partnering with major film studios, television networks, colleges and universities that demonstrate a commitment to working with our nation’s underrepresented minority groups.
