Steve Levy '87 Broadcasting Summer Internship Fund

This endowed internship fund was established by ESPN broadcaster Steve Levy ’87 to support Broadcasting students interested in taking internships to gain professional experience. The fund will be used to offset the cost of tuition credits and living expenses for Broadcasting students who demonstrate initiative and interest in the field and who would not otherwise be able to afford to take on an internship.

The award will go to one Broadcasting major participating and successfully completing a summer internship registered for credit through the SUNY Oswego EXCEL Office. To qualify for this award, a student must:
a. Be a full-time matriculated student in Broadcasting, who demonstrates initiative and interest in the field.
b. Entering junior or senior year.
c. Have documented financial need.
d. Have a minimum 2.50 GPA.

h. Agree to provide a brief (1 page) email report on your internship experience, to EXCEL within 30 days of the internship completion.
