The Research Services Intern at Americans for the Arts assists the department in gathering, generating, and disseminating the tools and information needed by arts industries stakeholders to inform decision-making and advocacy efforts.


A prospective intern should have experience interpreting survey data, analyzing results using statistical methods, strong analytical skills, and be interested in learning more about—and improving—the nonprofit arts field. He or she should also possess excellent communication skills, particularly in writing, and have a firm grasp of the mission and goals of Americans for the Arts.


Like all our summer interns, the Research Services Intern will team up with at least one intern from another department in the organization to work on and deliver a Summer Collaborative Project. This project will require a responsible and detail-oriented person with the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

  • Analyze and report on internal survey data
  • Assist in conducting phone or in-person interviews and keep detailed notes
  • Data entry and maintenance
  • Write abstracts, case studies, and project profiles
  • Develop web-based surveys for internal evaluations


  • Experience with Microsoft Excel, basic knowledge of statistics
  • Excellent written communication skills
  • Strong customer service skills
  • Ability to work independently and to communicate in a professional manner
  • Strong planning and project management skills
  • A commitment to serving the nonprofit arts field
