The application period is open for Bexar County's inaugural arts internship program this summer. The program is funding nine summer internships with local nonprofit arts organizations and will allow the nonprofits an opportunity to offer a paid 10-week summer internship to attract motivated college students to work on seasonal or special projects.
Students selected to participate will develop a closer understanding of how the arts benefit their community, along with the real world application of business skills that can be applied to their individual careers.
