LOS ANGELES COUNTY FUNDS 130 SUMMER INTERNSHIPS
AT 90 ARTS ORGANIZATIONS
Los Angeles County , through its Arts Commission, has given grants totaling $530,000 to 90 performing, literary, media and municipal arts organizations throughout Los Angeles County to support paid internships for college undergraduates in summer 2007.
Descriptions of and contacts for the 130 internship positions are posted on the Arts Commission’s web site. Here's the link.
Interested undergraduates should apply directly to the organization offering the internship, not the Arts Commission.
College undergraduates either resident in or attending school in Los Angeles County are eligible for the internships. Interns are paid $350 per week for ten weeks and take part in educational and arts networking activities.
Through the program, interns gain a deeper understanding of the work involved in nonprofit arts administration and the role of the arts in a community, and develop business skills that can be put to use in their future careers. Internship host organizations help mold and shape potential new workers in the arts field who may go on to arts leadership positions on staffs, boards or as volunteers.
