Internships are a very important facet of the curriculum at Goucher College. As such, the faculty consider well-structured internships to be essential to a student's education. Students find internship opportunities through the Career Development Office, through faculty and staff members, or on their own.
A detailed description of the off-campus experience is published by the Career Development Office each year and fully describes the guidelines and timetable for internships. Students interested in arranging an internship should contact their individual academic advisers.
Scholarships in the Arts
To recognize, promote, and attract students with creative talent in dance, music, theater, and visual art, Goucher offers two types of arts scholarships, awarded independent of financial need.
For first-year students:
The Fine and Performing Arts Scholarship (FPAS)
The Fine and Performing Arts Scholarship recognizes students interested in majoring in dance, theatre, music, or the visual arts. Awarded to outstanding student artists, this renewable scholarship is awarded in addition to any merit scholarship received. Selected applicants will be invited to campus in early March for an audition or portfolio review, and interview.
To apply, please complete the Scholarship in the Arts - Dance application. Applications are due by December 1 along with a completed application for admission.
For continuing students:
The Rosenberg Scholarships in Music, Dance, and Visual Art and the Wilhelm Scholarship in Theatre.
Continuing students compete for scholarships, awarded in the amount of $7,500 for one year only. The Rosenberg or Wilhelm can only be applied toward billable charges (tuition, room, and board). None of the scholarships can be combined with a Tuition Exchange, or a Tuition Remission benefit from Goucher College. In addition, students applying for need-based financial aid should note that receiving a Scholarship in the Arts will influence their demonstrated financial need and may, therefore, reduce some other portion of their need-based aid package. Current students may apply for a Rosenberg Scholarship in only one medium.
