Internships

AAF Tucson Student Student Internship Program

AAF Tucson continues to be a strong supporter of advertising education. Currently, The Art Institute of Tucson, Pima Community College, Southwest University of Visual Arts and University of Arizona each have an AAF Student Chapter and AAF Tucson has endowed a scholarship fund to help support those student members.

AAF Tucson will facilitate four paid internship opportunities for one student from each chapter. These paid internships will consist of a minimum of 10 hours per week for a sixteen week semester with a local company member of AAF Tucson. Recipients will be recognized during the annual AAF Tucson ADDY® Awards event held on the third Saturday in February.

The AAFT NextGen Council & Scholarship Committee plans and supervises the educational work of AAF Tucson. The President and Board of Directors work to insure that AAF Tucson's education initiatives are conducted with the best possible results. Each school chapter advisor will select a deserving student to apply for an internship from a list of participating companies. Through an interview process, the student will be matched with an appropriate company.
