LA County Arts Commission Grants Due 12-5-12

From The Los Angeles County Arts Commission:

Funding for non-profit arts organizations to hire college undergraduate interns in summer 2013 is available from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. The purpose of the County’s program is to provide undergraduate students with meaningful, paid on-the-job training and experience in working in nonprofit arts organizations, while assisting arts organizations to develop future arts leaders.

The guidelines and link for the online application and instructions for the Arts Internship Program are now available on the Arts Commission’s Web site. Click here!

The program is for Los Angeles County-based nonprofit performing, presenting (including film and media organizations with a presenting program), arts service and literary arts organizations that are interested in mentoring an undergraduate college student for ten weeks during summer 2013. Grants of $2,500 to $3,500, depending on organizational budget size, to be used to pay interns are awarded to successful applicant organizations. To support the internships, Los Angeles County, through its Arts Commission, will give grants totaling $250,000 to approximately 75 arts organizations throughout the County. The deadline to submit an application is Wednesday, December 5, 2012.

A free application workshop will be held on Thursday, October 25 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Arts Commission offices, 1055 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 800, in downtown Los Angeles. To sign up for the workshop please click here.

Organizations interested in this program should review the guidelines before beginning an application and be aware of the following:

Only nonprofit arts organizations that possess 501(c)(3) status and are not part of a college or university are eligible for the program, including municipal arts agencies and municipal performing arts organizations.

Each organization may request only one full-time intern.

Organizations with budgets over $1.5 million are required to provide a cash match of $500.

Organizations with budgets greater than $4 million are required to provide a cash match of $1,000.
