Star Trek Command Training Program

Check back in November for 2021 Star Trek Command Training Program information.

CBS Television Studios and the Television Academy Foundation have partnered to launch a unique Star Trek internship in 2020 as part of the Foundation's education programs. Open to undergraduate and graduate college students nationwide, the Star Trek Command Training Program will champion the core values of inclusion, access and opportunity.

Initially, the new program will place two interns per semester on a Star Trek series, taking place during the 2020 summer semester, and is designed to provide a 360-degree immersion in the production process of the Star Trek Universe. Selected interns will be actively engaged in writers' rooms, wardrobe design, on-set production, animation and post-production on Los Angeles-based programs and will earn up to $4800.

Upon completion, interns will join the Television Academy Foundation's Alumni Program and be eligible to participate in program and career support provided by the Foundation.

Each applicant will need to create an online application for consideration. Please read Rules & Eligibility for details.
