Each year, the Arts Administration Program offers a fellowship to the top-ranking first-year student. To be considered, completed applications must be received by February 1. Second year students receive a small stipend to help defray the costs of the internship, and are eligible for the Susan B. Llewellyn Fellowship. Assistantships are usually available in other departments such as Music, Theatre and Drama and the African American Arts Institute.
