Knight Foundation Grant Supports Summer Internship Fellowships at Moore

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Moore announced a grant from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to support internship fellowships for juniors participating in Moore ’s required internship program in summer 2009. Consisting of a 240-hour commitment, internships allow students the opportunity to gain real world experience in their major field.

This pilot program helps address one of the Foundation’s priorities: to encourage college students to remain in the Philadelphia region upon graduation in order to contribute their talents, skills and commitment to the creative economy.

The following are the finalists and their host sites for the Knight Foundation Summer Internship Fellowship, as recommended by the jury of Dean Dona Lantz, Professor Moe Booker, and Beth Feldman Brandt, Executive Director of the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation:

The Knight Foundation grant is also sponsoring NET Nights at Moore , a new program for young graduates of local art and design colleges to network with peers and business leaders. Presented by The Galleries at Moore in cooperation with The Locks Career Center, the first NET Night was held on May 29, with another event planned for later this summer. These lively evenings feature guest speakers, workshops and seminars designed to help Philadelphia artists and designers make creative contacts in our community.

The Knight Foundation promotes excellence in journalism worldwide and invests in the vitality of the U.S. communities where the Knight brothers owned newspapers. The foundation is committed to strengthening the vitality of the 26 Knight communities –including Philadelphia– where the Knight brothers owned newspapers. It has invested more than $639 million across those communities since 1950, including joining other public and private investors to begin transforming Philadelphia ’s Ben Franklin Parkway into a cultural campus.
