DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Each year, the NASCAR Diversity Internship Program (NDIP) seeks to obtain the highest quality of undergraduate and graduate applicants to be selected for this 10 week, paid opportunity. NDIP exposes multicultural students to employment opportunities within America’s number one motorsport. NDIP is also an important part of NASCAR’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion.

This year’s application process opened October 16, 2015 and will close January 15, 2016.

Candidates must have at least a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and must be at least a sophomore in college to be considered.

NDIP offers opportunities in various disciplines including marketing, public relations, engineering, human resources, public affairs and production among others. NDIP interns begin their internship with a three-day all inclusive orientation in Charlotte, NC, which includes attending the NASCAR Sprint All-Star race and touring the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Throughout the summer, interns complete hands-on projects and participate in developmental workshops and volunteer events. Senior executives meet with NDIP interns at weekly “Lunch and Learns” to provide key insight and professional advice.

NDIP interns are placed across several NASCAR departments and with industry partners such as Hendrick Motorsports, Octagon, Rev Racing, Roush Fenway Racing, Pocono Raceway and Switch: Liberate Your Brand. Partner participation has helped to solidify the role of NDIP as a pipeline for employment across the motorsports industry.


At the time of application, all candidates must:

  • Be currently enrolled in, or be considered a recent graduate of an undergraduate or graduate degree program who has graduated within the last semester.
    • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible to work in the U.S.
