Last Chance to Apply for Work-Scholar Program
Saturday, October 15th is the deadline to apply for Aperture’s Stevan A. Baron Work-Scholar Program.
Aperture’s Work-Scholar Program was created in 1983 to give individuals of promise the unique opportunity to work closely with our staff on a wide range of Aperture activities. The program welcomes an average of twenty interns every year, allowing young graduates from the United States and around the world to learn the skills required to pursue related careers while contributing to the Foundation and its programs.
Successful work scholars find themselves engaged in the editing, design, production, circulation, sales, and marketing of photography’s most significant publications; the development of major traveling exhibitions; the creation of web content; and all other business operations, including development and finance, essential to a non-profit organization.
Aperture Foundation’s Chelsea location offers the unique opportunity to work for six to twelve months in New York City and have access to art galleries, museums, and other art-related facilities. Work scholars meet people from around the world who share common experiences and goals. They make contacts within the photo community at Aperture events and through meetings with various professionals in the photography field.
We have positions within the Communications, Design, Development, Editorial (books or magazine), Exhibition, Finance, Magazine Circulation (magazine marketing, advertising), Production, Sales, and Website departments. It’s a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to explore career paths and build experience, while learning from Aperture’s talented staff.
