Internship Application


Each year the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts awards a $3,000 stipend to an Arkansas woman student attending an Arkansas university or college to collaborate with a mentor working in an Arkansas museum, gallery or cultural organization. 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.  

The deadline to apply is February 1, 2023. The award is announced March 1, 2023.
