The Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication (CARIMAC) has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding with Phase 3 Production that will see one outstanding final year undergraduate student will be awarded a one-month Internship Scholarship to Phase 3.

There was a great deal of excitement in Annex 2 on Friday, April 5 when Delano Forbes, CEO, Phase 3 Production, made the announcement. In addition to the unique on-the-job experience, based on this company’s wide variety of television and multi-media services, the student awarded will also receive $100,000. As Delano Forbes highlighted, this annual Scholarship will run from 2019 to 2023.

Dr. Livingston White, Director of CARIMAC, notes that, “a key element of our undergraduate degree programmes is an internship, where students apply what they learn in the classroom to real life situations. This MOU with Phase 3 Productions will offer students, particularly those in our BFA in Film Production, valuable work experience and opportunities for direct engagement with the industry.”

For Dr. Marcia Forbes, CARIMAC alumna, and Adjunct Senior Lecturer there, this MOU will facilitate a deeper collaboration with her alma mater.

The company has trained hundreds of Interns from local and overseas universities, as well as from other institutions such as the Universal Service Fund and the former National Youth Service (NYS).
