21st Century Artist Internships

Each year, UMS and SMTD select students to intern for 5-7 weeks during the summer with a professional dance, theater, or music ensemble that UMS plans to present during its upcoming season. UMS presents ensembles from all over the world, and so students will likely be assigned to intern in major metropolitan or international locations. Students:

  • Work with the University Musical Society.
  • Spend the summer with an artist or ensemble.
  • Earn a stipend of $6,000 (for placements in the United States) or $7,000 (for international placements) to support your summer internship.

Applications will open in January 2025
