Diversity Internship

The Museum is currently accepting applications from Washington University students for its paid Internship to Promote and Encourage Diversity in the Museum Profession.

From May 22-June 30, 2017, the student will participate in Museum outreach and community education programs, gain exposure to exhibition management, collection management, curatorial research, the Museum’s scholarly publications program, marketing, and visitor services, as well as behind-the-scenes operations of the Museum from security and facilities perspectives, including the storage, packing, and handling of art.

The internship is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at Washington University in St. Louis. Students in the Association of Black Students, Asian American Association, Association of Latin American Students, PRIDE, and multicultural student groups, as well as Enterprise, Rodriguez, and Ervin scholar groups, are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due April 7, 2017.
