As you prepare to ship your students off for a lengthy holiday break, why not assign them a little homework? The deadline for the Jacob’s Pillow 2016 summer internship application is January 15—it might be a worthy way to spend some holiday downtime, for students you think might be a good fit for the internship.
Jacob’s Pillow Dance, which is one of the longest running and most prestigious dance festivals in the U.S., selects a total of 33 interns for its summer program, in fields like archives/engagement; business; company management; education; fundraising; house management; marketing/digital media; photography; press; production; programming; ticket services; and video documentation.
If a student is selected as an intern, he or she gets on-campus housing and dining and access to seminars and mentoring, as well as free access to performances and dance class. Plus a $500 stipend. (Plus plus a $150 expense allowance.) Students can get college credit, too.
The 2016 summer intern program takes place in Becket, Massachusetts, and runs May 24 to September 1. January 15 is the priority deadline, but applications will still be accepted up until February 12. Click here for more details.
