Art Museum Scholar Summer Internships
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 of American Art
Patricia E. Kane Scholar of American Art
Patrick McCaughey Scholar of British Art
Duncan Robinson Scholar of British Art
The application deadline for 2015 internships has passed.
Institutional Archives Intern
The Yale Center for British Art Institutional Archives is the official repository for all historical documentation of the Center, recording its development from its inception in the mid-1960s to the present. The Senior Archivist seeks an intern with a background in art history or architecture and an interest in archival work to assist with the arrangement and description of the Center’s historical records—both paper and electronic. The intern will also carry out research on the Center’s archival collections in support of provenance research and various building conservation and refurbishment projects, as well as answer inquiries regarding the Center’s past exhibitions, publications, and programs. This internship provides significant opportunities for focused projects based on the intern’s interests and is ideal for students interested in the history of British art, museum studies, or the history of cultural institutions.
