For summer 2020, the C.M. Russell Museum is pleased to present internship opportunities in the fields of Research and Design of Educational Materials and Historical Research for Exhibitions

As part of the museum’s greater educational mission, the purpose of the Dufresne Scholar Award Internship is to expand the museum’s role as a national learning institution and center of inquiry. We seek to foster a widespread community of individuals and institutions that look to the arts as not only a means of personal enjoyment, but also as an invaluable tool for understanding cultural traditions, history, the environment, and the human experience. Through our internship program, we hope to empower aspiring professionals who are dedicated to the lives and stories that have shaped our world today, thereby ensuring the viability and integrity of our nation’s cultural, historical, and educational institutions.  

Each year, the museum offers a 10-week paid internship with a stipend of $4,000 for up to two individuals. Applicants are asked to review the list of projects available for summer 2020, available at the link below, and specify which project(s) interest them and best match their skills and education. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and academic disciplines to apply. The Dufresne Internship is open to undergraduate juniors and seniors, recent graduates, graduate students, or doctoral students. See this year’s listed projects, available at the application link, for preferred qualifications.
