Internships at NMAJH

The National Museum of American Jewish History is a leading cultural institution with a vibrant internship program for undergraduate, graduate, and recently graduated students who want to learn about public history, the museum profession, non-profit organizations, and the American Jewish experience. Interns work in specific departments and participate in periodic group experiences during the summer, fall, and spring terms. 

For this academic year (2016-17), we are also offering a limited number of paid internships to students with demonstrated financial need who can commit to a minimum of 8 hours per week for the full academic year, 16 hours per week for a semester, or full-time for the summer. These opportunities are made possible through a generous challenge grant from an anonymous national foundation, with the support of the Connelly Foundation and a local anonymous donor helping the Museum to meet that challenge. Internships can also be taken for course credit, where applicable.

Students must be able to work a regular schedule for a minimum of 6 hours per week on-site for at least one semester.
Interns will be placed according to their interests, experience, and the needs of the Museum. We will also be pleased to discuss a placement to support a specific project of interest to students. Potential placements include: Academic Liaison, Administration, Curatorial, Development, Education, Facilities Rental & Events Planning, Group Services, Marketing & Communications, Public Programs, and Retail/Operations.
