Metropolitan Museum of Art Summer Internships For College Students. The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers internship opportunities for college and graduate students interested in careers in art museums. Based upon their academic training and interests, as well as the availability of projects, interns work in one of the museum's departments (curatorial, education, conservation, administration or library). Most projects require strong knowledge of art history. Applicants of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
The Mortimer Hays-Brandeis Traveling Fellowship provides support to students in the visual and fine arts, including art history, conservation, studio art and photography for travel and living expenses outside the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii in accordance with a program of study or other activities approved by the fellowship selection committee. The $19,000 fellowships are funded by income from the Mortimer and Sara Hays Endowment at Brandeis University.
