Recognizing the need to provide hands-on, practical work experience not typically available to students and emerging professionals in the traditional academic setting, the Connecticut Office of the Arts has established an unpaid internship program. This program may be used by qualified students to obtain academic credit from their institution, but is also open to professional-track applicants not currently enrolled in an academic institution. Connecticut Office of the Arts interns also get the opportunity to complete an Arts Workforce Entry internship project that can also be used as a capstone or research project to help fulfill the academic requirement at your school or university and/or is great to have in your professional portfolio!
