The DeVos Institute offers competitive Internships for aspiring arts managers to gain critical hands-on experience in many areas of performing arts management. DeVos Institute Interns develop valuable relationships in the industry by training with Kennedy Center Staff and gain a broad understanding of the performing arts by participating in seminars and activities, attending Kennedy Center performances, and connecting with a vast network of DeVos Institute alumni.
Internships are full-time (40 hours per week), or part-time (20-30 hours per week), unpaid opportunities that are intended to complement a student’s current program of study or other employment. Interns receive complimentary tickets to Kennedy Center performances during the Internship (subject to availability), and/or academic credit for their college or university upon request. (Please note, the Kennedy Center is not an accredited institution; therefore college credit must be granted by the Intern’s current college or university.)
Full-time and part-time internships are available for current students (juniors and seniors) or recent college graduates (2 years or less).
Alumni have gone on to organizations such as The Atlanta Symphony, The National Endowment for the Humanities, The New York Philharmonic, The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the offices of Renée Fleming, Carnegie Hall, and The Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts.
