The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts seeks an intern with an interest arts administration, who wants to learn about the grant and fellowship process. The intern will be working with Individual Artists Program Director Mollie Flanagan to manage the spring grant cycle for individual artist grants, including fellowships and project grants for individuals. This includes reviewing grant applications for completeness and eligibility; tracking grant applications by category; preparing fellowship applications for panel review; and attending panel review meetings and taking notes. Based on the intern’s interests and skills, additional projects may include: work on the professional development workshop series; online marketing and content creation; assistance with RISCA’s strategic planning process; or program development. Internship includes mentorship from staff members, intern instigated projects, professional development, and a close up view of the day to day operations of a state arts agency.
RISCA is currently seeking an intern for April and May 2019. The intern is expected to work approximately 10-12 hours a week, exact hours are flexible and some work may be done from home. Some hours will be at RISCA offices, open Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm, located at 1 Capitol Hill, Providence, RI. This program may be used by undergraduate and graduate students to obtain academic credit from their institution, but is also open to applicants not currently enrolled in an academic institution. Unfortunately, this internship is unpaid, but we will do our best to ensure a positive learning experience focused on what you want to explore.
