The 2023 Folklife Internship at the North Carolina Arts Council offers a $6,000 grant stipend for 12 weeks of close work with the Folklife Program, while also offering opportunities to meet and learn from the entire Arts Council staff. Applications are due by midnight on March 5, 2023.

This year, the internship will be held on a flexible hybrid schedule, with two days of work at the downtown Raleigh office and three days of remote work. The internship may be completed over any 12 weeks from May to September, making it compatible with summer travel or academic summer research. The intern must be able to be in Raleigh, NC and is responsible for their own housing and transportation.

The Folklife Program welcomes applications from current or incoming graduate students in fields related to Folklore (Anthropology, English, American Studies, Journalism, etc), from upper-level undergraduates with a strong background in folklife or cultural studies, and from non-students seeking careers in folklife and arts administration who have a strong personal or working background in North Carolina’s cultural communities.

The intern will support the existing summer activities of the Folklife Program, but will also have opportunities to influence their work plan based on their strengths and interests.

Interested applicants can contact Zoe van Buren at [email protected].
