Maharam STEAM Fellowship 2019
Each summer selected students from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) are awarded internship opportunities through the Maharam STEAM Fellowship in Applied Art and Design. Starting in 2012, the New York-based textile company Maharam agreed to generously fund these fellowship opportunities for RISD students.
The Maharam STEAM Fellowship in Applied Art and Design provides grants for select internships with a government agency or nonprofit organization. Students must research and find their own placements and submit detailed proposals outlining how their internship experience will highlight and strengthen the role of visually acute critical thinkers and problem solvers in helping to improve public policy and tackle large social issues.
