(New York, NY, September 26, 2022) – Creative Capital, a nonprofit organization dedicated to grantmaking and wraparound support for individual artists, announced that it will be working with the Stanford in New York internship program, an immersive, off-campus program offered by Stanford University. The sponsored internship will provide rising senior Fahdah Ali AlSubaihin with ample opportunities to acquire knowledge in the cultural grantmaking field, learn new skills, and make professional connections.

“We are excited to work with Stanford to cultivate the next generation of grantmakers in the arts, especially diverse young leaders who will foster artistic freedom of expression internationally.” —Christine Kuan, President & Executive Director, Creative Capital

“As we aim to help students connect work with their intellectual interests and sense of purpose, Stanford in New York is thrilled to be partnering with Creative Capital for this unique and engaging internship.” —Rosina S. Miller, Director, Stanford in New York

“I grew up in Saudi Arabia where the arts weren’t quite encouraged. This led me to become personally interested in supporting artists in their endeavors. I thought that Creative Capital had an interesting and sustainable model for doing so and is also one of the most impactful organizations in the field. Additionally, I was drawn in by the unique and cutting-edge projects of the artists that it has funded in the past.” —Fahdah Ali AlSubaihin, Stanford University, class of 2023

Fahdah is a senior at Stanford University majoring in Economics and minoring in Data Science. She has previous experience working in management consulting in the Middle East with companies like Bain and Oliver Wyman. Additionally, she is interested in cultural heritage and preservation and has previously been a part of an underwater archaeological excavation in Sicily. In her free time, Fahdah likes to go bouldering, mountain biking, and hiking.

This academic semester internship builds upon Creative Capital’s paid summer internship program and partnership with Spelman College and the Atlanta University Art History + Curatorial Studies Collective (AUC) in Atlanta, GA, to help foster future generations of cultural leaders.
