Lawrence has existing partnerships with local and national arts organizations, such as:
Bread for the World equips people to write personal letters and emails, meet with their members of Congress, and to work with others to end hunger. Working through churches, campuses, and other organizations, we engage people in organized advocacy. For the past several years, BftW has offered a Lawrence-Funded Internship for a Lawrence intern.

Get Funding for Internships
