Museum of Modern Art Internship

The internship program is designed to introduce participants to specific areas of the museum profession.  Depending on departmental placements, interns gain an understanding of different areas within the Museum.  A lecture program complements the departmental training. The lecture series begins with a comprehensive weeklong orientation within the Museum.  Field trips are organized to other museums, galleries, and artists’ studios in the five boroughs of New York City.


Summer internships are full-time and last for 9 weeks, from June 8 through August 7.  They include a $2,000 stipend. Internships are also available in Fall and Spring.


Applicants must:

  • Be undergraduate juniors, seniors, recent graduates or current graduate students.
  • International students registered as undergraduates are eligible.
