National Gallery of Art Graduate Curatorial Internships
Graduate Curatorial Internships at the National Gallery of Art provide in-depth training for advanced PhD students and recent PhD recipients interested in gaining curatorial experience in a museum setting. Interns work with curators on permanent collection and exhibition projects and attend a weekly seminar that introduces the staff, departments, programs, and functions of the Gallery. The duties and responsibilities are comparable to those of curatorial assistants.
Eligibility is limited to doctoral students who are in the advanced stage of their dissertations and to recent PhD recipients (dissertations must have been filed no earlier than September 2013). Neither previous museum experience nor a stated goal of a museum career is required. Applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. This is an international program.
Graduate Curatorial Interns are in residence at the Gallery from September 14, 2015, to May 13, 2016, and work full time. Interns receive a stipend of approximately $30,000 that is subject to all applicable taxes.
