Los Angeles County, through its Arts Commission, has given grants totaling $250,000 to arts organizations throughout Los Angeles County to support paid internships for college undergraduates in summer 2010. Descriptions of and contacts for the internship positions will be posted on the Arts Commission’s Web site from April 28 to May 31, 2010.

Interested students should apply as soon as possible as positions are closed as soon as they are filled. Students apply directly to the organization offering the internship, not the Arts Commission.

Qualifications: Graduating seniors who complete their undergraduate degrees by September 1, 2010 are eligible, as well as undergraduates. Applicants must have completed at least one semester of college by June 2010 and be currently enrolled (full-time) in a community college or a four-year university. Applicants must be a resident of and/or attending school in Los Angeles County.

Job Descriptions: Interns work for 10 consecutive weeks starting between May 31 and June 11, 2010 and ending between August 6 and August 20, 2010. They are paid $350 per week, for 40 hours a week, 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 arts leaders who may go on to hold positions on staffs, boards or as volunteers.
