CNBC, first in business worldwide, recently announced the introduction of the CNBC Summer Fellowship Program in partnership with Hampton University's Scripps Howard School of Journalism & Communications as well as the Missouri School of Journalism and New York University.

Set to launch this summer, the fellowship is designed to focus on diverse or underrepresented students and give them the opportunity to explore business news journalism and the fundamental skills of news production, as well as provide the unique experience to work in a live newsroom with the highest caliber journalists in the field.

"Fostering a diverse and inclusive environment that attracts and retains top talent is a key priority for CNBC," said Tyler Benjamin, Global HR Leader, CNBC. "We are proud to align with these exceptional schools to offer their students the opportunity to learn about creating and distributing business news across all platforms from the best financial journalists in the world."

The CNBC Summer Fellowship Program will offer participating students the opportunity to work on many of CNBC's signature Business Day programs like Squawk Box and Mad Money w/ Jim Cramer. In addition, they will learn from the CNBC Digital team about how the global business news organization delivers real-time financial market news and information to its vast portfolio of digital products including CNBC.com, CNBC PRO, the premium, integrated desktop/mobile service, and its suite of mobile products including the CNBC Universal App for the iPhone/iPad.

"Upon my arrival here a few years ago, we set out to begin preparing Scripps Howard students for the expanding world of business and financial news. We have been working hard to achieve that goal, and this new CNBC Fellowship is a testament to our early success," said Brett Pulley, Dean of the HU Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications. "These student fellows will gain invaluable real-life experience inside the newsroom of one of the world's most powerful business news outlets. With this wonderful fellowship and other related initiatives, the Scripps Howard School is playing a pivotal role in cultivating a new generation of diverse business news professionals."
