Designed for students enrolled in graduate programs interested in pursuing careers in history, American studies, museum studies or related fields, the Simmons Internship Program provides participants with an exceptional opportunity to experience life in a major American history museum. Each of the two interns will work directly with a curator who serves as a mentor. In addition to completing specific project assignments, Simmons Interns are encouraged to participate in the larger life of the institution in order to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the varied aspects of museum work. The capstone experience of the internship is a formal public presentation of project results.
