Internships for Arts Managers at DeVos Institute

Hands-on Experience for Aspiring Arts Managers
The DeVos Institute offers competitive Internships for aspiring arts managers to gain critical hands-on experience in many areas of performing arts management. DeVos Institute Interns develop valuable relationships in the industry by training with Kennedy Center Staff and gain a broad understanding of the performing arts by participating in seminars and activities, attending Kennedy Center performances, and connecting with a vast network of DeVos Institute alumni.

Applications are due October 24th! Get yours in today!
Internships are full-time (40 hours per week), or part-time (20-30 hours per week), unpaid opportunities that can complement a student’s current program of study or other employment. Interns receive complimentary tickets to Kennedy Center performances during the Internship (subject to availability), and/or academic credit for their college or university upon request. (Please note, the Kennedy Center is not an accredited institution; therefore college credit must be granted by the Intern's current college or university.)

Alumni have gone on to organizations such as The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, The National Endowment for the Humanities, The New York Philharmonic, The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the offices of Renée Fleming, Carnegie Hall, and the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts.

Applicants must be currently enrolled juniors or seniors in undergraduate programs, Master's candidates, or have completed a degree within the past two years.

Spring Internships are available in the following departments:
Advertising, Marketing, Arts Education, Development, DeVos Institute of Arts Management, Institutional Affairs, Information Technology, National Symphony Orchestra Administration, Press, Programming, Production, Volunteer Management, Washington National Opera.
