SCHOLARSHIPS & INTERNSHIPS

CREATING OPPORTUNITIES TO THRIVE

 

Our goal is to make transformational residency experiences accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of color, gender, class or creed. For increased financial accessibility, we have several options including early bird rates, scholarships, & worktrade.

 

1. MOMENTOM SCHOLARSHIPS

Momentom recognizes the importance of Solidarity and Allyship work. Having scholarships available is just one of the many ways we continue to open our residency for creators from all walks of life. We hope these scholarships allow those with financial restrictions and great ideas to have the opportunity to take part in a residency that will propel their careers as artists or thought leaders forward.

Momentom Collective offers a total of five (5) scholarships per Residency season. If selected, you will receive one month in your residency of choice.

3. INTERNSHIPS

Internships are offered by Momentom for students seeking extracurricular hours at a University or who are looking to grow their skills in a specific domain of business. Interns are looking to study, learn and acquire the skills to run a residency or create large transformational events. The difference between internships and worktrade are a) the amount of hours and b) internships are online with access to residency (Work traders work in residency). Momentom also sees internships as potential apprenticeships for those who are thinking to  to join Momentom in the long run.
