Art Museum Scholar Summer Internships

Art Museum Scholar Summer Internships provide funds for undergraduate Yale students to participate in summer internships at the Yale University Art Gallery, the Yale Center for British Art, or other art museums.

About the Internships

Art Museum Summer Scholar Interns receive a stipend of up to $3,500. Internships must be eight weeks. At least one of the internships is to be held at the Yale University Art Gallery and one at the Yale Center for British Art. The internships at the Gallery and the Center familiarize students with the operation of museums and curatorial departments and provide an opportunity to work on a project related to a specific aspect of the museum’s collection. Students seeking opportunities with other art museums must procure such internships on their own. Although the awards are open to Yale students in any field, preference will be given to students whose interests lie in American art and/or British art.

The internships are named as follows:

Helen A. Cooper Scholar
Patricia E. Kane Scholar
Patrick McCaughey Scholar
Duncan Robinson Scholar

The application deadline for 2016 internships has passed.
