Interns will have the opportunity to learn about an art foundation by working on projects alongside renowned artists and curators. The BEF accepts applications for internships, from which students in tertiary institutions in Nigeria gain academic credit. Getting involved is an excellent way for students to learn about art, and about the people, organisations and agencies that play a role in shaping the art world. The Foundation works closely with local and international government agencies, non-governmental organisations, and other academic institutions that may be relevant to the future career interests of students. The BEF accepts applications for internships only for undergraduates. Preference is given to students of fine and applied art or those that have prior experience in an art foundation, though they are not requirements. Applications are welcome from all students who are interested in learning about art and how art foundations work.
