BerkleeICE Fellowships

Wondering if you can afford to do an internship? Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship (BerkleeICE) funded fellowships are sponsored internships that pair highly gifted Berklee undergraduate and graduate students with employers in the new media, creative, and technology industries. BerkleeICE also funds the Global Fellowship which supports internships outside the United States at nontraditional music companies. 

Think Outside the Stage

Many recognize Berklee as a world leader in producing successful performers, producers, film scorers, and music industry professionals, but Berklee graduates also hold key leadership positions in companies like Apple, Red Bull, Coca-Cola, and Google X. Why? Thinking like a musician makes you much more likely to be a creative problem solver and a great collaborator with excellent empathy skills.

"Musicians naturally think and behave in a way that encourages creativity and innovation." —Alex Olsen, music business/management major

If selected, you will be offered an internship grant by BerkleeICE to intern full time for eight–12 weeks at an internship you secure yourself. Internship grant amounts support living expenses and will vary depending on whether or not the internship is paid; they are not to exceed $1,500 per month and/or $5,000 total.

Note: you are encouraged to search and apply for your own internship placements on the Berklee Career Manager.

Entrance Requirements

Berklee undergraduate and graduate students from all majors may apply.

Internships can run any semester. You may still apply if you have not secured an internship as long as it meets the following program criteria:

  • The employer is a nontraditional music industry company.
  • The position is full time (35–40 hours per week).
  • The position runs eight–12 weeks.

Note: the program is offered on both a for-credit and not-for-credit basis.
