Applications are now being accepted for the second annual NBA HBCU Fellowship, as the NBA and the NBA Foundation partner with Historically Black Colleges and Universities to share opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students as they move forward with their careers and lives.

 

Rising juniors, seniors, and graduate students from HBCUs can apply today through Feb. 20 to intern with the league office or teams for a 10-week period this summer.

 

Candidates will be interviewed on a rolling basis and offers will be extended in early spring.

 

The paid fellowship program with the NBA and teams is designed to provide career development around the business and operations of the game, as well as offer touchstones that reflect the culturally relevant experience of attending an HBCU.
