    Homewood’s Internship Program provides Johns Hopkins undergraduate students with the opportunity to gain significant understanding of the museum profession through work at Homewood Museum. 

    All candidates must be enrolled as undergraduate students at Johns Hopkins and must have some relevant coursework in American Art, Architecture, History or Material Culture, as well as Museums & Society, anthropology, archeology or education. Experience with graphic design is a plus. Graduating seniors are not eligible the summer after their senior year.

    Two interns will be selected for Summer 2018 and will receive a stipend of $1,500 (100 hours/14 weeks). Exact dates and hours of work will be determined by the curator and the intern. Participants are not eligible to receive academic credit. It is strongly suggested that applicants visit the museum prior to submitting their application if they have not already done so. Information on visiting Homewood may be found here.

    Selection is competitive. Applicants should include a resumé or curriculum vitae, a letter of application describing particular interests and relevant experience, and a letter of recommendation from a professor. This letter of recommendation should be sent directly by the professor to the email address below. Applicants should submit their application electronically no later than Sunday, March 12, 2018 to: Rachel LaBozetta, Program in Museums and Society, rlaboze1@jhu.edu

    APPLICATION REVIEW

    The Program in Museums and Society will make a preliminary review of applications. A list of candidates will be forwarded to the Homewood Museum director/curator for final selection.

    The Nan Pinkard-Aurelia Bolton internship was established in honor of Anne Merrick Pinkard by lead gifts from Aurelia Garland Bolton and Hershel L. Seder, and support from the France-Merrick Foundation. This internship celebrates the lifelong friendship of these two women and their shared devotion to Homewood Museum. A second internship is made possible in 2018 by the many dedicated individuals who donated to a summer 2017 fundraising campaign.
