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.
