Job Description

Reach Honorship – Animation/Hanna-Barbera – Summer 2021 (Virtual)

PLEASE NOTE: Only high school seniors are eligible to apply. No other applications will be reviewed.

The Job
Since 2006, Warner Bros. has awarded the Animation/Hanna-Barbera Honorship, an internship-scholarship package, to graduating high school seniors passionate about the business of animation. Warner Bros. has a long history of supporting youth enrichment, ranging from educational programs to mentoring relationships to career opportunities. Through the Warner Bros. Reach program, one outstanding student is awarded the Animation/Hanna-Barbera Honorship that includes a scholarship and four full-time paid internships at the company during four consecutive summers while enrolled in college. Successful Reach program graduates will be eligible for full-time positions at Warner Bros.

The Warner Bros. Animation/Hanna-Barbera Reach Honorship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior enrolling in a four year college or university to study animation. Each cash scholarship will be for $5,000, disbursed annually in equal amounts of $1,250 over four years. Applicants must have (1) a passion for a career in animation; (2) impressive drawing, sketching and/or animation skills; (3) effective verbal and written communication skills; and (3) a minimum GPA of 3.0 upon graduation. The funds may only be used toward the tuition and related expenses of an accredited four-year college or university. Disbursement of funds will be made directly to the school once the Honorship winner is enrolled and annually thereafter for three years, provided a GPA of 3.0 is maintained.

In addition, the winner will have the opportunity to receive four (4) consecutive, paid summer internships with WarnerMedia while in college, beginning with the summer immediately following high school graduation. The Honorship recipient will be contacted by WarnerMedia each spring to discuss potential placements for the upcoming summer.

Please note relatives of WarnerMedia employees are NOT eligible to participate in the Reach program.

Applications must be completed online by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 22, 2021. Short-listed applicants will be asked to complete an interview prior to the final decision. The winners will be notified by April. For more information, please e-mail Reach@WarnerBros.com.
