The Illinois Arts Council Agency (IACA) Summer Youth Employment in the Arts (SYEA) program provides funds to eligible Illinois not-for-profit arts organizations to support summer employment opportunities for high school students. Jobs may be administrative or artistic in nature, or a combination of both. The intent is to provide positive experiences and training in the arts to enhance personal growth, while supporting the mission and goals of the host organization.
The application deadline for FY21 SYEA is November 30, 2020.
SYEA will award up to $6,000 to eligible applicants for student employees' stipends. Grant requests for Fiscal Year 2021 are for employment opportunities occurring between May 15 and September 15, 2021.
To be eligible, applicants must have received an IACA Program Grant, Grant to Arts Service Organizations, or Partners in Excellence Grant in Fiscal Years 2020 or 2021.
SYEA is made possible with an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
