Elspeth McConnell Fine Arts Award
Funded by the Doggone Foundation, this award is a terrific opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to create their own internship project with a non-profit organization of their choice.
About the award
The Elspeth McConnell Fine Arts Award offers an amount of $5,000 for selected students to undertake internships in non-profit arts organizations and projects. Two awards are granted in each of the nine departments of Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts for a total of eighteen awards per year.
These awards allow students in either the second year of a graduate program or the third or fourth year of an undergraduate program to gain on-the-job experience.
Students are encouraged to come up with an idea or project for an internship and approach a non-profit art organization of their choice to work with.
Internships can take place at museums, cultural festivals, exhibition spaces, community theatres, performing arts groups, artist-run centres, co-ops, libraries, schools, art therapy sites or other non-profit arts organizations and projects.
