Paid Summer Internships at the RISD Museum — Application deadline February 28, 2014

 Now Accepting Applications for Summer Internships

 

The RISD Museum’s paid summer internship program is open to undergraduate and graduate students; students graduating in the spring of 2014 are also eligible. Applicants should have some background in art history or fields related to the Museum department offering an internship.  The ten-week internships begin on June 2, 2014, and end on August 8, 2014. Interns are expected to spend 20-25 hours a week in the Museum depending on the position.  Participation in the five-hour Wednesday seminar focusing on museums is included in their weekly hours.The goal of the program is to provide an overview of museum functions and in-depth experience working in ancient art, conservation, contemporary art, decorative arts and design, education, marketing,  publication, or works on paper. The internships are designed particularly for those students who have had little professional art museum experience.  Interns will work on departmental projects and learn about the various activities that take place in the Museum, both the public functions and behind-the-scenes operations.  At the end of the program each intern will submit a paper on her/his experience in the Museum and give a brief oral report to Museum staff and invited guests.

The deadline for submitting applications is February 28, 2014. Read more and apply online.
