Students local to the Philadelphia area are eligible to apply for a fall, spring, or summer administrative internship.
MembershipFor only $25, students can become a member of International Performing Arts for Youth. Membership includes automatic registration for our "members only" listserve, access to our online job postings, and opportunities to interact with members from across North America and around the world.
ShowcaseIPAY offers discounts to students attending Showcase. Students can attend the full Showcase for a total cost of $225, or they can attend one day of Showcase for $75. For more details, go to Showcase Pricing Information.
Jim Rye ScholarshipJim Rye Fellows are given their Showcase conference fee free and a complimentary year long membership to IPAY. The Jim Rye Fellowship is open to graduate students only. We are looking for young emerging professionals from graduate programs to attend the conference and inspire us all—and do a little work as well.
