The Gephardt Institute is seeking students who are motivated full-time Washington University undergraduate juniors going into their senior year interested in the intersection of civic engagement and the performing arts, visual arts, literature, or music. We encourage a broad range of applicants from all backgrounds, perspectives, and schools who have varied knowledge and experience levels in civic engagement and the arts.
The Civic and Community Arts Residency will begin in April 2019 with students participating in an orientation and training. Students will work up to 10 hours a week as embedded staff members at partner arts and community based organizations. Between June and August 2019, students will work 30 to 40 hours a week at partner organizations to participate in the planning of a civic and community arts engaged performance, production, project, or exhibition, created for and with community partnership. This commitment also includes additional educational experiences. Each student fellow will be matched with an organization and project. Students receive a stipend of $5000 to cover cost of living and other expenses for the summer.
