The museum offers a variety of internships for undergraduate and graduate students. Most provide college credit, and two summer programs, the B. Craighead Davidson Internship and UNCG/Gayle Hicks Fripp Internship, provide a salary. Applications are accepted on a rolling calendar with deadlines, and announcements are typically sent to community colleges, colleges and universities the semester prior to the internship.
Interns agree to a contract with their staff supervisor that describes their project and lists work responsibilities. Ongoing communication and collaboration ensure a positive work environment and a defined outcome. At the end of their projects, interns are requested to write an informal account of their experience.
Interns have assisted departments on a broad range of projects, from helping with collections inventories to working with manuscripts to community outreach and educational programs.
Check back in January for summer 2019 internship announcements
