David Tarr & Gisele Chevrefils Arts Internship Award

The David Tarr & Gisele Chevrefils Arts Internship Award was established by David Tarr (BA’61) to help students gain firsthand experience related to their fields of study. Administered through the Dean’s Office in conjunction with the Faculty of Arts Internship Office, this Award is designed to lend financial support to students pursuing internships, particularly with community-based initiatives in the fields of education, sustainable development, community development and government accountability. The Award is meant to provide partial funding to assist students with travel and other expenses related to their internship.

Students must have a demonstrated interest in community-based initiatives in the fields of education, sustainable development, community development or government accountability, and propose an internship with a host organization actively engaged in this field. Preference will be given to students with a demonstrated sense of initiative whose past and future activities embody community-based initiatives.
