Graduating seniors who complete their undergraduate degrees between May 1 and September 1, as well as undergraduates are eligible to apply for one of 74 internship at arts organizations throughout Los Angeles County.

Applicants must have completed at least one semester of college by June 2013 and be currently enrolled in a community college or a four-year university. Applicants must be a resident of and/or attending school in Los Angeles County. Students who have previously participated in the Los Angeles County Arts Internship Program are not eligible to participate a second time.

The positions are for 10 weeks and pay $350 per week. Interns also take part in educational and arts networking activities funded by The Getty Foundation.

Detailed descriptions, including contacts, for the internship positions are available at

Interested students are encouraged to apply immediately for these highly competitive, limited positions. Students apply directly to the organization offering the internship, not the Arts Commission. Internships begin June 3, 2013.

Through the program, interns gain a deeper understanding of the work involved in nonprofit arts administration, 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.
