Internship Opportunity: Costume & Textile Collections at the Valentine

The application for the Valentine’s funded summer internships will be open January 1, 2015 – March 1, 2015.

Funded internships are made possible through the Bobby Chandler Internship program, which is generously funded by the Kip Kephart Foundation. These internships are awarded through a competitive application process to up to five interns each summer.  A minimum commitment of 150 hours is required. An honorarium will be provided upon completion. Funded internships are open to students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program. Recent graduates (Spring 2015) will also be considered for this internship.

Students not looking to receive compensation for their internship may still apply for a General Summer internship at the Valentine – please indicate that you are applying for an unfunded internship in your application.

Internships, providing hands on curatorial and collections experience, are available with the following departments this Summer (click link for collection information).

To apply for a summer internship: Send a completed internship application along with your resume, cover letter, unofficial transcript and the contact information for 2-3 professional or academic references to the Assistant Director of Public Programs. Your cover letter should explain how an internship at the Valentine will help you achieve your future career and/or academic goals.
