College Internship

Each year, we award a $3,000 stipend to an Arkansas woman student attending a university or college in Arkansas to collaborate with a mentor working in an Arkansas museum, gallery or cultural organization. This award is open to both under-graduate and graduate students.

The internship is designed to give the student an opportunity to learn about and make contributions to the cultural life of Arkansas while enriching her program of study related to the advancement of fine arts, art history or arts administration. Chosen by Committee members from numerous applicants, the internship has enabled recipients to pursue real-life work experiences in the arts.
