The Stanford Internship Program in Arts Administration (SIPA) is a funding program that supports the exploration of career pathways in the arts. SIPA is part of Cardinal Quarter, a campus-wide experiential learning initiative.

SIPA is a self-designed internship stipend program. SIPA interns spend the summer quarter working full-time with a supervisor/mentor in a United States-based arts organization of their choice.
