New-York Historical is temporarily closed to help contain the spread of COVID-19, but we expect to reopen August 14 with a free, outdoor exhibition. See more details on our Visit page.

College and Graduate Internships

The New-York Historical Society offers internships in both our museum and library divisions. From modeling creative exhibition layouts to researching with our curators and educators, college and graduate interns experience unparalleled career development and cultivate fruitful professional relationships. Applicants who are selected to participate in this rewarding yet demanding experience will either be paid a stipend or receive academic credit, depending on the intern’s school requirements. The summer internship program will run virtually June through August (unless otherwise specified), and interns may work up to 120 hours throughout the duration of the program.

Requirements:
Applicants should be undergraduate or graduate students though recent graduates may also apply. Please see individual descriptions for department specific requirements. Interns are considered employees, and upon acceptance into the program are required to provide documentation that they are legally allowed to work in the United States. International students may apply and are responsible for providing the same documentation and obtaining the necessary visas

Upcoming Dates to Know:

The application period for summer 2020 internships has now closed.
