The Summer Internship Program in Arts Administration (SIPAA) provides invaluable experience to Stanford students interested in pursuing careers as arts professionals in various aspects of administration, production, and management. Internships give students an opportunity to step outside the classroom and build a set of skills applicable in their careers as artists, administrators, and future leaders.

Internships generally last approximately nine weeks and are full-time positions of at least 35 hours per week. Students will receive a base stipend of $5,000 for the summer, plus financial aid if needed up to $6,100. Internships are open to current Stanford undergraduates. Graduating seniors ARE eligible to apply.

The internships with arts non-profits are some of more than 450 Cardinal Quarter opportunities through which Stanford students pursue a full-time summer or quarter-long public service experience with Stanford support.
