Graduate Curatorial Internships at the National Gallery of Art provide in-depth training for advanced PhD students and recent PhD recipients interested in gaining curatorial experience in a museum setting. Interns work with curators on permanent collection and exhibition projects and attend a weekly seminar that introduces the staff, departments, programs, and functions of the Gallery. The duties and responsibilities are comparable to those of curatorial assistants.
Graduate Curatorial Interns are in residence at the Gallery from September to May and work full time. Interns receive a stipend of approximately $30,000 that is subject to all applicable taxes.
