Internship Program

The Internship Program offers a limited number of internships to advanced undergraduate and graduate students up to one (1) year after graduation.

Students interested in gaining professional experience in a public museum environment have a unique opportunity to work directly with museum professionals and participate in structured opportunities to learn more about the Society’s work through the cohort activities. Students will be able to engage with interns from across the institution and develop a network of students and museum professionals. Most internships at the Society are unpaid.

Time Requirement

Interns are generally expected to complete their work only during weekday hours (7:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.). With the exception of internships at some of our historic sites, weekend and evening schedules may be observed only if the intern supervisor finds it appropriate for an intern to work during such hours. Please refer to specific position description for details for time requirements for each position.

All interns are required to participate in monthly cohort meetings on Tuesday evenings from 3:00 - 6:00 PM. The schedule for cohort meetings is set each semester.
