The Walt Disney Company UNCF Internship Program—Now Open!
The Walt Disney Company UNCF Corporate Scholars Program, supported by a $1 million commitment from the Walt Disney Company, is expanding its program by providing both scholarships and internships to high-achieving African American students across the country. This program offers career readiness tools to assist students in achieving their goals in the entertainment industry through experiential learning during an internship with the Walt Disney company for Summer 2021.
