RAM’s internship program is temporarily suspended until further notice.


Interns are offered hands-on training in the related internship position and an overview of museum operations. They are exposed to a number of everyday museum functions and participate in special projects.

With the exception of the Administrative Internship, these internships are unpaid; however, most educational institutions can offer pay or academic credit. Students are encouraged to discuss possibilities with their college or university. Work/Study students welcome to apply.

Recent college graduate within the above disciplines (eligible for one year following graduation). Preference will be given to currently enrolled students.
