Semester internships are available to college students for credit. This is an excellent opportunity for students to get behind-the scenes experience working with the education and curatorial departments. Projects vary, but students will leave with in-depth knowledge of the Everhart’s collection, day-to-day experience of both preparation and execution of galleries and programs, and having made a significant contribution to the ongoing development of the Everhart Museum. Internships are available for spring, summer, and fall semesters. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Call us for further information.
