Gyo Obata Fellowship
The Gyo Obata Fellowship is a program for undergraduate students pursuing careers in arts management. With major funding provided by the Gateway Foundation, the program will address the need for a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable local nonprofit arts and culture sector.
The Gyo Obata Fellowship is a substantive, full-time, summer work opportunity for college undergraduates from backgrounds that have been traditionally underrepresented in the arts. The 10-week paid summer fellowship program will provide a minimum of ten college students working towards careers in arts administration with a hands-on introduction to arts nonprofits in St. Louis City and County.
Applications will open for the Gyo Obata Fellowship in the Fall of 2022. In order to be eligible for the program, students must meet the following qualifications:
- Currently enrolled in any bachelor’s degree-seeking program of an accredited college or university in the greater St. Louis area.
- Students who are enrolled in an accredited college or university outside of the St. Louis area may apply but must reside in St. Louis City or County.
- Entering their third or fourth year of undergraduate studies, have at least 60 credit hours from an accredited college or university, or have graduated within a year of the program start date.
- Must also be able to legally work within the United States.
