The Museum’s Internship Program provides college undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates with a wide range of experiences designed to provide insight into the daily workings of a professional museum environment. In addition to working on meaningful, engaging projects with Museum staff, interns engage in a series of meetings, workshops, public programs, and offsite visits to arts and cultural institutions.

The Studio Museum offers paid internship opportunities in conjunction with the academic calendar year. While we have closed our applications for our general Summer 2019 season, we still have two positions available for our Arts Intern positions. Please see below for the instructions for that specific partnership.

The next application cycle will be for the Fall 2019 season. The application form and a full description of each available internship position will be posted on this page by July 1, 2019.

The following internships will be available for the Fall 2019 season: Communications, Curatorial, Director’s Office, Development, Education, Public Programs & Community Engagement, and Registrar. Please note that we allow applicants to select a first and second choice for positions they would like to be considered for.

Only individuals authorized to work for the Museum in the United States will be accepted into the internship program. The Museum will consider expressions of interest in providing volunteer services to the Museum from non–work authorized individuals.

If you have any questions about internships, please email internships@studiomuseum.org.

Arts Intern provides opportunities for college undergraduates to learn about nonprofit arts professions through paid internships in museums and cultural institutions. For eligibility and application information regarding the Arts Intern positions, please visit the Arts Intern website and direct all Arts Intern-related inquiries to artsintern@studioinstitute.org.
