About the internship: 

In honour of journalist and broadcaster Peter Gzowski, CBC Radio has created an internship program for university students in his name. McGill University students in the final year of their program are eligible to apply. 

Over the course of four months, the Gzowski interns will each receive training in the basics of journalism, radio and online production. McGill interns will be placed with CBC Radio Montreal to learn about the craft of making content for all CBC platforms.

CBC offers competitive wage and interns have access to select CBC benefits.
