John Malveaux of
Applications for 2015 Getty Multicultural Undergraduate Internship grants to museums and visual arts organizations are due February 3, 2015!
Since its inception in 1993, the internship program has supported more than 2,700 internships in Los Angeles-area museums and visual arts organizations. The program aims to increase diversity in the professions related to the visual arts and to provide programmatic support for local organizations.
The internships are intended specifically for outstanding students who are members of groups currently underrepresented in the museum and visual arts professions: individuals of African American, Asian, Latino/Hispanic, Native American and Pacific Islander descent.
Museums of all types and nonprofit visual arts organizations of any size that are located in Los Angeles County are eligible to apply for the 2014 grants. Applicants must have nonprofit status as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Service Code.
Applications are available online and must be submitted electronically by February 3, 2015. Please go to http://www.getty.edu/foundation/funding/leaders/current/mui_organizations.html to read program details and submit the application.
