Finding Remote Internships during COVID-19

Updated April 14, 2020

In this time of great change, the Museum Studies Network (of AAM) and NYCMER (New York City Museum Educators Roundtable) have produced this survey and linked crowdsourced spreadsheet to share remote internship opportunities for emerging museum professionals looking to pursue Summer 2020 internships in museums, libraries, archives, historic sites, zoos, aquaria, and organizations that operate in service to these institutions.

While many of these institutions remain physically closed and have moved their operations online, they still are in need of interns for this upcoming summer. We are collecting opportunities to connect these institutions with interested applicants and vice versa.

If you are a museum with a remote internship opportunity or interest in learning more about hosting remote interns, please fill out this survey.

If you are a student seeking a remote internship, please review this Google doc.

Don’t have an online internship planned, but looking to learn more about moving your internship opportunities online? Please fill out the survey so that the Museum Studies Network can be in touch with more information.

DISCLAIMER: the American Alliance of Museums, the AAM Museum Studies Network, and NYCMER have not vetted or endorsed the internships listed in this document and have solely created this as a tool to collect information for museum studies students to easily find digital internship opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Students interested in these opportunities should consult their university’s internship credit policies and follow their institution’s guidelines. Students should direct questions about specific remote internships to the institutions offering them.
