As an organization that values its commitment to diversity and the power of the arts to change society, Wolf Trap is deeply committed to widening access of its acclaimed Internship Program. Students of all minority ethnicities (including those with cultural/ethnic backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the arts management field) and students who qualify for needs-based support at their college or university (who might not otherwise be able to participate due to the cost of housing and transportation) may select to apply to the Internship Program under the Diversity Initiatives. In addition to the experiences all Wolf Trap interns enjoy, students accepted to receive support under these programs will be awarded a transportation and housing stipend to offset these expenses.
Students of a minority ethnicity who desire to apply to the Internship Program and wish to be considered for a Multicultural Diversity Initiative award should indicate this choice on the Internship application cover form. Students selecting to apply for consideration under an Economic Diversity Initiative award should select this choice on the application cover form and submit proof of Federal Work Study (FWS) Financial Aid eligibility. This can be in the form of an email or written documentation from an administrative office at the student’s college or university. Receiving a Diversity Initiative award is not guaranteed as there are a limited number of awards available each summer season.
To apply, please follow the general application instructions and specify in your cover letter your desire to participate in the Multicultural Diversity Initiative or Economic Diversity Initiative.
