Interning with the DeVos Institute
As a leading provider of arts management training worldwide, the DeVos Institute and its leadership offer valuable, hands-on experience for aspiring arts managers. Interns gain practical skills in event management, research, evaluation, reporting, and business communications by supporting the Institute’s domestic and international training programs and consulting engagements for over 800 arts organizations around the globe. Interns also gain an expansive understanding of the arts industry by working with a wide range of arts and cultural organizations and industry professionals who serve as Institute advisors.
Internships are full-time (40 hours per week) or part-time (15-30 hours per week) unpaid opportunities that are intended to complement a student’s academic program of study, during or shortly following an undergraduate or graduate program. Interns have the opportunity to attend special events, including presentations with domestic and international delegations that visit the Institute. Upon acceptance into the program, Interns develop a personalized schedule with their program manager based on their availability. A transportation subsidy will be provided at a rate of $6/day.
Applicants must be currently enrolled sophomores, juniors, or seniors in undergraduate programs, Master’s candidates, or have completed a degree within the past two years. Internships may be completed for academic credit through the Intern’s current college or university.
