The Arts Intern program matches skilled college students with paid internships in museums and organizations. These internships are crafted to provide interns with meaningful tasks and responsibilities that make them an active part of the departments and organizations that host them, resulting in valuable career experiences. The program seeks candidates with demonstrated financial need and encourages applicants from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Positions are open in Boston, Cleveland, Memphis, New York City, Philadelphia, and Providence. Arts Interns are treated as professionals and earn a competitive wage. In addition to working side-by-side with people who are experts in their field, interns have opportunities to interact with their peers in the program.
To be eligible, students must have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of less than $5,000. This number is on the Student Aid Report on the FAFSA form. To see what it looks like, click here.
