The Graham Digital Internship Program is a paid program intended to augment the educational development of those studying for careers in digital media and broadcasting. The program provides structured opportunities coupled with appropriate supervision, evaluation and feedback for students enrolled in institutions of higher learning to gain experience in the day-to-day operations of the Graham Digital team.
