INTERNSHIPS & INTERN-TO-HIRE
The Curatorial Program for Research offers both academic year and summer internship programs for college students. Internships are geared toward juniors, seniors, and graduate students. Working under the supervisor of a department head, CPR Interns will obtain practical training in education and curatorial practices, and will assist with regular departmental duties that range from research and special projects to administrative tasks. For the benefit of the trainees, CPR Interns gain insight and learn about CPR's various programs, traveling exhibitions, international workshops, lectures and symposia, and other activities throughout the world.
