Summer Internships for People with Disabilities 2015
Since 1964, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC has offered professional museum training to candidates from all backgrounds through a variety of internship programs. Nine-week summer internships provide opportunities to work on projects directed by a Gallery curator or department head. Biweekly museum seminars introduce interns to the broad spectrum of museum work, and to Gallery staff, departments, programs, and functions. In 2015, the Gallery will provide two paid internship opportunities for people with disabilities.
Any college student (degree- and non-degree-seeking), graduate student, law student, or recent graduate (degree must have been received no earlier than 2014, ages 15-22) is invited to apply. You will not be required to disclose your specific disability; however, your application for this program will signify that you consider yourself a person with a disability. Applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Summer interns are in residence at the Gallery from June 8 to August 7, 2015. Interns receive a stipend of approximately $4,500 that is subject to all applicable taxes. In addition, interns receive a monthly public transportation subsidy.
The deadline to submit your internship application is Monday, March 23, 2015.
Complete application packets must include:
- Completed application form
- Full résumé or CV
- Unofficial academic transcripts from all colleges/universities attended
- Two letters of recommendation from professors or teachers. Letters must be in sealed envelopes with the recommender's signature across the seal. If preferred, letters may be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
