Opportunities for art students via AmeriCorps

From a UW press release:

AmeriCorps is helping to connect University of Wyoming students to their communities through Scholarships for Service positions.

Students can receive a $1,000-$1,250 education award and college credit by completing internships, students teaching roles, clinical hours or a practicum.

Applications and more information are available on the UW Center for Volunteer Service Scholarships for Service Web page at , or by e-mailing Nellie Simon at Applications for the spring and summer are due Nov. 20.

AmeriCorps is one of the programs in the Corporation for National & Community Service.

Note to UW students in fine arts, creative writing and theatre/dance: The Wyoming Arts Council in Cheyenne is always on the lookout for interns. The positions are unpaid, but we've worked with faculty at UW and LCCC to provide course credit for internships. All the better if you can also get paid for your time through AmeriCorps. E-mail Mike Shay or call 307-777-5234.
