NAACP, CBS aid USC vision

Recipients to be mentored by Eye execs

The NAACP and the CBS Television Network have partnered to create a fellowship for USC School of Cinema-Television students whose work illuminates the ways minorities are represented in the industry.

In addition to financial aid, recipients of the NAACP/CBS Fellowship will be mentored by Eye execs, intern at the NAACP Hollywood Bureau and gain production experience on the NAACP Image Awards.

Fellowship’s inaugural recipient is Akela Cooper, a second-year MFA student in USC’s screenwriting program.

“We’re thrilled to partner with the NAACP and USC on this program, which will provide means and access for the scholarship recipients and an opportunity for CBS to be part of developing the next generation of diverse talent to feed new ideas and voices into our industry,” CBS chairman Leslie Moonves said.
