Read the entire application and complete it thoroughly. We have up to 36 spots for students and our decision will be based on the content and quality of your complete application. 

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to gather recommendations, transcripts and attendance from your school so please do not procrastinate! 

For the application, we do ask for your school transcript OR report card AND attendance records to complete your application. However, we understand that it might be difficult for you to get those right now.

If you can’t get in touch with your school counselor OR your school does not have a counselor, you can fill out this form and reach a “virtual counselor” who can help. 

If you are still unable to get them, please do your best to report your grades as you remember them right now.  Once it is possible to retrieve those documents, we will ask you to share them with us. 

If you are invited to a group interview, interviews will be held on April 29, May 4, 5, and 6.  You will be required to attend one of these, so please mark your calendars for now.  And if we are still not gathering in groups, we will be in touch about connecting virtually!

The following questions are being used to assess the Bloomberg Arts Internship Program. Your answers will not be used to evaluate your application, nor will they be shared in any way that would allow your answers to be linked to you.
