Foundation / Corporation
Grants of $15,000 to Calgary Area, Alberta nonprofit arts organizations to hire arts graduates for internship positions. Applicants must contact program staff to obtain access to the application. The purpose of this program is to provide graduates with career development opportunities in the arts sector.
The first steps on an artist’s career path after formal training are typically the steepest and hardest to climb. As part of the Rozsa Foundation’s long-term commitment to strengthening the arts sector in its entirety, the Foundation is proud to offer Arts Internship Grants for smaller organizations (no more than 5 FTEs), giving them the opportunity to support an artist through this phase of their career, while also assisting arts organizations to address staffing challenges and help build internal capacity. The Intern should also contribute toward an internship "Legacy" piece - a resource or project that will stay with the organization and be used after the internship ends (process manual, collection database, established community relationships, etc).
Rozsa Foundation Artistic Internship Grants are designed to provide employment opportunities for recent arts graduates in their selected field and to advance their knowledge, skills, experiences, and networks. This grant stream supports a flexible approach to high-impact, mentor-driven learning and opportunity within the field for artists in the fields of choreography, composition, conducting, creative and critical writing, curation, design, direction, and playwriting among others.
- Funds granted from this program may only be used for an intern’s salary. No other costs, including mentoring fees or external professional development are eligible.
- Co-op work terms, or any other component of an intern’s educational degree, are not eligible for funding.
- The organization’s project budget should illustrate the requisite $3,200 and mandatory employment related costs and any other additional investments in the internship.
