ARTS INTERN: OPENING DOORS TO ARTS CAREERS
Since 1999, Studio Institute’s Arts Intern program has provided early-career opportunities for skilled college students interested in museum careers, who may otherwise lack access to such vital experiences without this opportunity.

Arts Intern places undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need and from diverse backgrounds in paid internships that can impact their career paths in profound and lasting ways.

In addition, the program includes an educational component that gives interns face-to-face interactions with seasoned professionals across the field, increasing students’ knowledge of and connection with museums and cultural institutions.

MENTORSHIP AND APPRENTICE-BASED LEARNING
Through the Arts Intern program, interns meet experienced staff involved in all facets of an institution’s functions and apply new skills under a supervisor’s guidance, working side-by-side with people who are experts in their field and building a professional network.

AUTHENTIC WORK EXPERIENCE
Within the scope of specific, time-bound assignments, interns complete meaningful work as a member of a team, and are encouraged to take initiative and shape projects with a fresh approach. They are treated and perform as professionals. Arts Interns finish the program having gained experience, skills, knowledge, and relation-ships that equip them for a future in the field.
