Spend your summer break working alongside and learning from a UArts alumni working in your field.

Now in its eighth year, the Summer Fellows Program provides opportunities for high-achieving University of the Arts students to gain meaningful experience in a creative field during summer break. Fellows are matched with a UArts alumni host, who invites them into their workplace to observe, engage and participate in unique projects and programs. The program offers students an exceptional opportunity to work one-on-one with alumni who are working artists.

Students selected to be UArts Summer Fellows go through a rigorous application process, including an interview, and are motivated to demonstrate their classroom skills in the working world. While students do not earn academic credit for participation in the Summer Fellows Program, UArts does provide them with a modest stipend and alumni hosts provide a flexible summer experience that can be one, four or eight weeks in duration.
