Host Institutions

Institutional host selection is the responsibility of award applicants. VRA’s Visual Resources Emerging Professionals and Students (VREPS) have compiled a list of institutions willing to host an intern. This list is provided as a courtesy to applicants, others searching for internships, and organizations seeking interns; please note that other institutions may also be eligible to host VRAF interns.

Note to potential host institutions: You are invited to add your information to the VRAF 2018-2019 Internship List by sending an email to VREPS co-chair Kendra Werst (knw2@williams.edu) with the following information: institution name, contact person, address, telephone, email, URL, and a brief description of the internship.

Deadlines for 2018-2019

  • 8/6/2018; Deadline for submission of applications to the VRAF Internship Award Committee.
  • 8/27/2018; VRAF Internship Award Committee announces the award recipient for 2018-2019.

The deadline for submission of evaluation forms and documents by the intern and the host institution will be within 30 days of the completion of the internship. The evaluation reports for a recipient who elects to complete the internship during the spring semester or quarter must be received by March 1, 2019. The remaining documents verifying the completion of the internship may be submitted later.

Monies from the Internship Award may not be used to cover indirect costs at institutions.
