Edgerton Program in Theater Summer Internships

The Edgerton Foundation Program in Theater at Occidental College supports two (2) Summer Internships. Current sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply. We will consider applications from current frosh who are declared majors, with priority given to sophomores and juniors. The work expectations for Edgerton internships are approximately 10 weeks at 35 hours per week. The study grant awarded for the internship is comparable to InternLA internships, and to Mellon and URC research awards ($4,000.00).

The support from the Edgerton Foundation may be for UNPAID internships with local partner theaters such as Center Theatre Group, The Theatre @ Boston Court or The Echo Theater Company. The support may also apply to UNPAID internships at other established THEATER companies ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY. It is not necessary to have an internship offer in hand in order to apply.

Priority will be given to applications from declared majors followed by those from declared minors. Priority will be given to applicants who have not received Edgerton support previously. The application form is available here.
