Association of Art Museum Directors Aims to Diversify Museum Field with New Internship Program

NEW YORK—The Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) has announced the launch of a pilot internship program that will engage undergraduate students from underrepresented backgrounds in order to nurture their career opportunities in the museum industry.

The program will invite up to ten students for the pilot year and will provide them with a twelve-week long, paid internship at different AAMD member museums located near the students’ homes or universities. Interns will be paired with a mentor, who will direct their activities and provide overall counsel on their professional development. Applications to be a host institution for the program will open this summer, with internships beginning in spring 2019.
