Internship Subsidy Program
The Magazine Association of BC has applied for internship subsidy funding for between 2021 and 2023 from the Canada Periodical Fund (CPF).
If funded, we will increase the maximum subsidy to $5,500, standardize the minimum magazine contribution to 20 percent, and offer a stipend for internships outside the major metropolitan areas in BC to assist with recruitment.
Although in most cases, we will only accept applications to host internships that are at least 20 hours per week for 16 to 26 weeks (increased from 16 to 22 weeks), we will also accept applications for internships of 10+ hours per week from very small magazines. (Contact the association if you’re not sure if you’re eligible for the latter internships.)
We will publish the new internship subsidy guide here with all the details as soon as we hear back from our funder.
If you have never hosted an intern before, Michael True of Messiah College, Pennsylvania has compiled an orientation paper. Although the content is US-based, it is very valuable.
Please direct any questions to Sylvia Skene, Internship Coordinator and Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 604-688-1175.
