- Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP) Since 1973, the 4A's Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP) has helped jumpstart the careers of more than 2,000 African-American, Asian-American, Latino-American, Native-American, multiracial and multiethnic aspiring advertising professionals.
Each year, undergraduate and graduate students are selected for a 10-week paid summer internship at an 4A's member advertising agency. Students gain practical work experience, establish key industry contacts, and perhaps most importantly, become better prepared to land a full-time job in advertising when they graduate. At the same time, the program gives advertising agencies a cost-effective way to identify and recruit talented multicultural students.
Upon completion of the program, interns become members of the MAIP Alumni Association, a close-knit family of MAIP graduates that fosters the development of future MAIP interns as well as the professional development of the program’s alumni.
