Philadelphia Museum of Art Summer 2014 Internships

June 10 – August 19, 2014

The Museum Studies Internship Program is an internship opportunity that exposes interns to the inner workings of a major metropolitan museum, promoting an awareness of careers in the field through experiences not available in most academic settings. The Museum selects a diverse group of talented undergraduate and graduate students from a highly competitive, international pool of candidates.


The Museum Studies Internship Program offers unpaid volunteer internships each summer to applicants who:

  • are currently enrolled undergraduate or graduate students, or who have graduated within the same calendar year as the Internship;
  • have completed at least their sophomore year of college by the end of the 2013 spring semester;
  • have maintained at least a 3.0 grade point average.

About the Program

The program runs Monday through Friday, for nine weeks. The Internship is made up of two parts: Interns work for three and one-half days per week in a Museum department; one and one-half days a week they participate in a Museum Studies course.

How to Apply

All Applications must be postmarked by January 31, 2014. Applicants must submit:

  • the application (see the link below);
  • an official, sealed academic transcript;
  • two letters of recommendation from current or former college professors, academic advisors or recent/current employers;
