The National Gallery of Art is offering nine-week summer internships for undergraduate and graduate students, which provide them opportunities to work on projects directed by a Gallery curator or department head. Biweekly museum seminars introduce interns to the broad spectrum of museum work, and to Gallery staff, departments, programs, and functions. In 2020, interns will engage with museum visitors by developing and leading public tours in the galleries. At the beginning of the summer, interns will participate in an intensive training about gallery teaching. They will learn how to talk with visitors about original works of art in the galleries in a way that is relevant, engaging, and accessible. Interns then develop tours that incorporate their own interests and offer visitors an insider perspective on the National Gallery of Art and its collection.

Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility varies according to an internship. A few are geared to undergraduates completing their degrees in May and June 2020, but most are for currently enrolled graduate students of all levels and those graduating in May or June 2020 with a relevant degree (such as MA, MBA, MFA, MArch, MEd, JD, or MLS).

Internship Coverage:

Summer interns will be in residence at the Gallery from June 1 to July 31, 2020. Interns must be available for the entire nine weeks, 40 hours per week.

Interns will receive a stipend of approximately $4,500 that is subject to all applicable taxes. Interns using an authorized public transportation method will receive an employer-provided fare subsidy to apply toward their monthly transit costs.

Required Documents:

The application must be in English and should contain the following:

  • A letter (single-spaced, about 750 words) to the selection committee stating applicant's reasons for participating in the museum training program at the National Gallery of Art at this point in his education or career, including what he is hoping to achieve from the experience, what he feels he can contribute to the department(s) in which he is interested, and how such an experience would further his education and career plans.
  • A writing sample (no more than 20 pages, including footnotes or endnotes, bibliography, and images). An academic paper works best for a research position. Business and law students may decide to submit a case, advice memo, or brief. Applicants to conservation and design internships are asked to submit a portfolio of completed projects.
  • A résumé or full curriculum vitae of education, professional experience, honors, awards, and publications.
  • One copy of unofficial transcripts from each undergraduate and graduate institution attended.
  • Contact information for two references. One of these references must be someone who knows the applicant in an academic context (either a professor or instructor). Once submitted the references’ names, titles, and email addresses, they will automatically be emailed instructions for uploading their letters online. The gallery strongly encourages references to submit letters in English.
