Internships are funded by donations to HGA. You can support this program by making a donation.

Convergence® Internships are available to students registered in accredited academic fiber arts programs. With contributions from HGA’s Fiber Trust, HGA covers all travel and lodging expenses for the Interns. Interns will assist Leaders in their classrooms, assist with exhibit set-up and tear-down, work behind the scenes on the Fashion Show, and perform miscellaneous conference duties as needed by the HGA staff. In return, students receive a complimentary CVP and the opportunity to take Sessions for free (Interns are responsible for any Session material fees or supplies).
