About The Television Academy Foundation
The Television Academy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that preserves the legacy of television while educating and inspiring future leaders.
Established in 1959 as the charitable arm of the Television Academy, our Foundation preserves the legacy of television while educating and inspiring those who will determine its future. The Foundation has helped thousands of talented undergraduate and graduate students find their voices, refine their skills and forge rewarding careers in every area of the television industry. They include prominent writers, producers, documentarians, creative executives, network presidents and more.
For more than fifty years, the Television Academy Foundation has inspired and nurtured the talents of thousands of students through its widely heralded internship and recognition programs and its Archive of American Television. As we help to shape the future of television, we bring young people together to share ideas, build relationships and challenge conventional thinking. We believe the best way to prepare for television’s future is to help shape it.
