Saraceno Internship

The CJ Saraceno Memorial Scholarship and internship provides financial support and transformational experiences to enterprising, creative Tufts students who might otherwise be unable to pursue work opportunities in Los Angeles. Each summer, one student is selected from a pool of applicants to intern at Bona Fide Productions, the award-winning company behind Little Miss Sunshine, Nebraska, and many other films and projects, including the HBO series The Leftovers.

This internship was established in memory of CJ Saraceno, A11, a passionate creator who challenged the status quo. The scholarship is funded by alumni, friends, and family members who cared about CJ – as well as those who were inspired by him.

Summer 2024 applications will open in January 2024. Application Requirements:

  •     Application
