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 2023 LAPI grant is now closed.
