INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The National Collegiate Athletic Association (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 and 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.
Who is eligible:
Applicants must be a college graduate from a four-year NCAA member school by the start date of the internship program. The NCAA Postgraduate Internship Program is not designed to provide credit toward an undergraduate degree, but an intern may be eligible to earn credit toward a graduate degree.
What internships are available:
The NCAA offers yearlong internships within several focus areas at the national office: administrative services, accounting, championships, marketing, communications, education and community engagement, executive, inclusion, governance, public relations and regulatory affairs.
