Nancy Horton Bartels Academic-Year Internships

The Nancy Horton Bartels Academic-Year Internships provide opportunities for Yale undergraduate students to participate in departmental projects at the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art.

About the Internships

The Nancy Horton Bartels Academic-Year Internships are offered annually and are funded by an endowment established in 2005 by Henry E. and Nancy Horton Bartels. The internships aim to familiarize students with the operations of museums and curatorial departments. Interns work for ten hours per week for two consecutive terms and receive an hourly stipend. Internships focus on specific projects proposed by departments at the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art.

Eligibility and Requirements

Internships will be awarded to students who demonstrate superior performance in their respective fields. Applications must include the following:

  • A cover letter describing the relevance of the internship to your larger goals
  • An unofficial transcript of your undergraduate record
  • Two letters of recommendation (emailed directly by your references)

Application Deadline: Friday, February 15, 2019

Successful applicants will be contacted prior to Spring Break and may be called for an interview. Should you not be selected for your preferred internship project, you may be contacted regarding other internship possibilities. Selected candidates will be subject to pre-employment screening, and all offers are contingent upon the successful completion of a background check.
