HBCU to Hollywood scholarship and internship program
At NUCONTEXT, we understand the significance of providing "foot-in-the-door" opportunities, especially for underrepresented young individuals with aspirations to thrive in Hollywood. Our Founder and Executive Producer, Angela Guice, hails from South Mississippi and knows firsthand how rare these chances can be.
In 2019, while filming the iconic "Good As Hell" music video for Lizzo at Southern University Baton Rouge, a culturally significant HBCU, our team was blown away by the sheer talent and determination of the students aspiring to make it big in the entertainment industry.
That very experience inspired the birth of the NUCONTEXT HBCU to Hollywood scholarship/internship program, which officially came to life in 2021. Every year, we handpick one outstanding student from Southern University for a fully paid 6-8 week internship in Los Angeles. Additionally, they receive a $5,000 scholarship to assist with travel, living expenses, and further education costs.
Our internship program offers unparalleled real-world, hands-on training on set and during pre-production, coupled with invaluable networking opportunities and ongoing mentorship beyond their time in Los Angeles.
Streetlights PA Placement Program
For over three decades, Streetlights, a prominent Los Angeles-based organization, has been at the forefront of the industry, empowering and equipping underrepresented and economically challenged young individuals with invaluable production knowledge.
NUCONTEXT takes immense pride in collaborating with Streetlights, recognizing their remarkable impact, by ensuring the employment of at least one Streetlights graduate in each of our productions. Our mission is to offer these talented individuals opportunities for career advancement and mentorship whenever feasible, fostering a brighter future for the next generation of creative minds.
