The Los Angeles County Arts Internship Program (AIP) supports and strengthens the cultural sector of LA County by providing access to high quality opportunities for college students of all backgrounds to gain experience, understanding, and transferable skills relevant to careers in the arts, the creative economy, and engagement in public life. Established in 2000 as a companion to the Getty Foundation’s Marrow Undergraduate Internship Program, which funds 10 week, full-time internships in visual arts organizations and museums for college students, AIP allows students to develop a deeper understanding of the work involved in nonprofit arts administration, better understand the role of the arts in communities and develop skills that can be put to use in their future careers. It does this by providing grants to nonprofit performing, presenting, film, media, literary, and municipal arts organizations to hire students to engage in specific projects over the summer.

With the support of the Arts and Culture, 203 college students interned at 125 performing, presenting, film, media, literary, and municipal arts organizations in Summer 2019.
