The successful recipient will identify grant applications and funding initiatives for The Art Mentorship Society of Alberta from a variety of government, health and arts organizations. 


This position aims to support the selected candidate's  hands-on training within the context of a non-profit, board-led arts society through its operational, budgetary, and programming development. The candidate will gain knowledge of all aspects of the non-profit organization through the process of grant writing and fund development. 


This internship is based around narrative proposals and grant writing specifically. However the applicant could come from any background as long as they have ability or experience with grants and proposals.
