2022 Internship Program

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2022 Internship Program. Applications for the 2022 Internship Program are under review.

The VAFF hosts an intensive internship program each year that gives five students hands-on experience in all aspects of planning and running a five-day festival. Our internships are open only to current, full-time University of Virginia students.

2022 Internships are available in the following key areas:

  • Outreach & Events
  • Production
  • Programming
  • Promotions & Social Media

Qualified candidates will possess excellent verbal and written communications skill, and the ability to organize and execute tasks in a fast-paced environment. Applicants must be detail-oriented, self-motivated, flexible, and be able to work in a team situation.
