What The Student Gains:

Earn a Stipend: The Allen County Museum offers a stipend available at the completion of the internship to reimburse, in part, travel expenses incurred during the experience. Internship stipends are determined by the number of hours worked and can range between $500-$800 per internship.

Gain Professional Experience: Expand your knowledge and career by working with professional staff. Interns have opportunities to shadow staff in addition to their projects.

Observe a School Tour: Learn how our tours tie in with the Ohio Learning Standards and see what an asset volunteers are to the museum.

Work With the Staff: In order to provide an overview of the different positions in the museum, interns will have the opportunity to network with staff, where they will learn about different areas of the museum field, such as collections, exhibitions, education, marketing and administration.

Check back in July for Fall 2024 internships.
