Entertainment Law & Policy Fellowship

The Entertainment Law & Policy Fellowship is the result of a partnership between the Motion Picture Association and the Entertainment Industry College Outreach Program. It is the first of its kind to serve recent graduates from Historically Black Colleges & Universities and other minority serving institutions.

This prestigious program eliminates systemic barriers to entry by providing selected Fellows with housing, travel and pay stipends to participate in the year-long program. Fellows will gain relevant work experience working with MPA member studios, interacting with senior-level industry executives and policy makers, while building the skills needed to prepare them to lead as future law and policy leaders.”
