HistoryThe Juilliard Professional Apprentice Program has been an integral part of the Juilliard School for over 40 years. Participants have come from 45 states and the District of Columbia. Internationally, they have come from 26 countries. There are over 900 alumni of the program.
In 1977, The Internship in Production for the Performing Arts was created as a way to enlarge the Production Staff while providing young people with professional experience and a platform from which to launch their careers. The program was retitled The Juilliard School Stage Department Intern Fellowships in 1979, with fellowships offered in Scenic, Lighting and Costume Design. Other internships included: Properties, Stage Management, Production Management, Publicity, Graphics and Photography. By 1982, the Program was no longer design-oriented but instead focused on all aspects of technical theater. Its name changed again to The Juilliard School Professional Production Internships. Two Arts Administration Internships were introduced in 1991 and the name changed to The Juilliard School Professional Internship Program.
The program has grown enormously over the last few years. Transformed into the Juilliard Professional Apprentice Program in 2016, the program offers administration, assistant design, orchestra management, stage management and technical theater apprenticeships for individuals who demonstrate a strong desire and potential for their chosen career path.
