For nearly 30 years, the Foundation has funded the Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship program at museums and visual arts organizations across Los Angeles. Although this summer presents unique challenges due to COVID-19, we remain committed to offering these valuable learning experiences to college students.
Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internships will be hosted by approximately 60 Los Angeles-area museums and visual arts organizations during summer 2021.
The internships are intended for outstanding students who are members of groups underrepresented in museums and visual arts organizations, including but not limited to individuals of African American, Asian, Latinx/Hispanic, Native American, and Pacific Islander descent.
Eligibility for the internships is limited to currently enrolled undergraduates (bachelor's degree program, associate's degree program, or a vocational or technical program below the baccalaureate level) who reside in or attend college in Los Angeles County. Students must have completed at least one semester of college by June 2021, and those who will complete their degree by September 1, 2021 are also eligible to apply. Candidates can be from all areas of undergraduate study and are not required to have demonstrated a previous commitment to the visual arts.
Training and work may be conducted remotely in Summer 2021 in accordance with the guidelines issued by the LA County Department of Public Health and the State of California's COVID-19 Guidance. Applicant organizations must submit proposals and workplans for remote internships. Workplans must demonstrate the ability to support a fully online work experience; positions based solely on hands-on, onsite work will not be deemed competitive for the 2021 cycle.
All internship positions will be filled by May 17. Visit our website for a full list of internships: https://www.getty.edu/foundation/initiatives/current/mui/internship_positions.html
