Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters

The Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters (iNRB) provides exciting opportunities for college students to polish classroom skills and become ready for the world of work, particularly work in the fields of broadcast ministry and Christian filmmaking.

And, for NRB member schools who attend the NRB International Christian Media Convention, that’s not all!

 

The Challenges draw students from across the country.

Students …

  • Attend networking events and build lifelong connections.
  • Meet internship providers and potential employers.
  • Attend NRB 2024 at no charge! That’s right — no charge!

Once participating teams submit their entries, Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning respectively, advising faculty and student team members will be free to enjoy the convention, including the student-specific offerings.
