Internships

FCA offers semester-long and summer internships to undergraduate and graduate students. Given the small size of the FCA staff, interns are given meaningful projects that provide an in-depth exposure to a nonprofit arts organization.

Semester-long interns are asked to make a 10 hour minimum weekly commitment for a minimum of 12 weeks. Summer interns are asked to make a full-time commitment for a minimum of 10 weeks. FCA is please to offer a stipend to semester and summer interns. 

Selection is made on the basis of the applicant’s interest in contemporary art, performance, music and dance and/or the applicant’s interest in fund-raising and development, and the desire to having a meaningful work experience. Applicants should be responsible, organized, motivated and detail oriented individuals with good writing skills, computer skills and a professional phone manner.

The application process is ongoing.  Summer interns must apply before February 20 to be considered.  Academic semester interns may apply at any time.  To apply please email a resume and cover letter detailing how your background and coursework will contribute as well as what you wish to gain from the internship to:
