**Important Update Regarding Internships**
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. As a result, internship opportunities for 2020-2021 have been cancelled in response to concerns related to COVID-19. Please check back for updates.
The Dayton Art Institute’s Student Internship Program is designed primarily for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students and is intended to provide valuable insight and first-hand knowledge to those invested in pursuing a museum or non-profit industry position. By serving as an assistant to mid- and senior level museum employees, students will learn about our mission, vision, key priorities, collections, and gain practical and theoretical training in organizational systems as well as participate in regular activities of the department.
Internships are available seasonally in the fall, winter, spring, and summer in a broad range of disciplines including building rental, curatorial, development, education, human resources, and marketing.
DURATION OF INTERNSHIP
Internships are designed to last 10-12 weeks or the equivalent of a school term or semester. Interns are expected to maintain a work schedule equivalent to 8 to 10 hours per week. Schedules are arranged to meet both the needs of the student and the museum. If a student requires a compressed short-term internship, 100-hours minimum will be expected.
Most internships are non-paid unless otherwise specified within the description. Internships may, however, be completed for course credit. Interns are responsible for providing the internship description to their advisors and for making all the appropriate arrangements to receive credit.
On occasion, a stipend-based internship may be funded by a grant, individual donor, foundation or organization. Stipends are not considered salary or compensation, but are awarded to help support an intern’s study, research and travel efforts during the tenure of their appointment. Interns awarded stipends must complete a W-9 and will receive a financial summary at the end of each calendar year. Interns are responsible for meeting their own state and federal tax obligations. Carefully review the internship posting to determine whether the position is unpaid or provides a stipend.
No applications are being accepted at this time. Please check back for updates. For more information, contact Maria Dunphy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
