Summer Internship

The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Working Time
Part Time

The Met is offering a very limited number of unpaid summer internships to students who are ineligible for or cannot participate in the full-time MuSe Program. Unpaid internships are intended primarily for students who are in an early, exploratory phase of their studies, such as undergraduate freshmen or sophomores. These internships are more flexible than MuSe internships, and are usually part-time (two to three days a week, with a minimum of twelve hours per week). As part of their hours unpaid interns must participate in an internship program once per week on Friday mornings. Interns may be placed in any Museum department, depending on their interests and skills, as described above. Request a full list of possible internship placement areas.

Dates: June 5–August 11, 2017

Eligibility: Unpaid internships are available to undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in a degree-granting program, as well as recent graduates. To be considered a recent graduate, applicants must have graduated no more than twelve months before the application deadline. PhD students may be eligible to apply within the first twelve months of their program, provided that they have not yet achieved candidacy. PhD candidates are not eligible for internships. Undergraduate and graduate internships at the Museum are open to international applicants. Contact if unsure of eligibility.

To Apply: 

There is no fee to apply for an unpaid internship.
Application deadline: March 5, 2017, 11:59 pm (ET)
Notification: Last week of April, 2017
If you are applying to the MuSe Internship Program and also wish to be considered for an unpaid internship, you must complete the unpaid internship application separately. You may re-use the same essays and documents wherever applicable.
