Now in its fourth 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 his or her 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. The University of the Arts provides Summer Fellows with a stipend and alumni hosts provide a summer internship that can be one, four or eight weeks in duration.
