Leadership and Arts Policy Internship (LAPI) grants

Leadership and Arts Policy Internship

LAPI provides an opportunity for public policy majors to be awarded up to $4,000 for summer internships related to arts policy. LAPI emerged from Leadership and the Arts in New York, a popular, semester-long immersion program created by Bruce Payne, the founding director of the Hart Leadership Program.

Any Public Policy major at Sanford School who is planning to fulfill their internship requirement in the summer, and wishes to work with an organization that focuses on arts policy, is eligible to apply for the LAPI grant.

The application for a 2019 LAPI grant can be found here. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 1st by 11:59 PM. Please contact Associate in Research Adam Beyer (adam.beyer@duke.edu) with any questions or to discuss finding internships that connect the arts and policy.
