Since its inception in 1999, the ARTS Intern program has provided an exciting opportunity for college undergraduates to learn about museum professions in New York City, through internships in museums and cultural institutions. The program seeks candidates with demonstrated financial need and encourages applicants from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Museums host interns in meaningful, educational positions in many different departments, ranging from curatorial, education, development, finance, and special events. Interns will have time-bound assignments and individual projects. In 2009, the program was incorporated into the programs of Studio in a School, and continues to be managed under the guidance of Thomas Cahill.
