The NCAA Postgraduate Internship Program annually provides on-the-job learning experiences at the national office in Indianapolis to college graduates who are passionate in their pursuit of a career in college sports administration.

With a focus on ethnic minorities, women and former student-athletes, this yearlong program gives insight to the inner workings of college sports from the national perspective. Interns over the past 25 years have taken their experience and institutional knowledge onto campuses and into the conference offices as full-time administrators.

NCAA postgraduate interns are nonexempt employees with benefits and they receive comprehensive training, mentor assignments, networking opportunities throughout the internship. Additionally, postgraduate interns plan and execute professional development site visits to conference offices, member campuses and affiliate organizations to further their knowledge of the collegiate sports industry and network with today’s leaders.

Applicants must be a college graduate from a four-year NCAA member school by the start of the internship program June 15, 2020. The NCAA Postgraduate Internship Program is not designed to provide interns internship credit toward an undergraduate degree; however, with graduate school approval, an intern can be eligible to earn graduate degree credit.
