College and Graduate Internships

The New-York Historical Society offers internships in both our museum and library divisions. From modeling creative exhibition layouts to researching with our curators and educators, college and graduate interns experience unparalleled career development and cultivate fruitful professional relationships. Applicants who are selected to participate in this rewarding, yet demanding experience will be paid a stipend of $1500 or receive academic credit, depending on the intern’s school requirements. The part-time fall internship program will run virtually November 1 through December 17 (unless otherwise specified), and interns may work up to 120 hours throughout the duration of the program.


Applicants should be undergraduate or graduate students though recent graduates may also apply. Please see individual descriptions for department specific requirements. Interns are considered employees, and upon acceptance into the program are required to provide documentation that they are legally allowed to work in the United States. International students may apply and are responsible for providing the same documentation and obtaining the necessary visas

Upcoming Dates to Know:

Applications for the Fall 2021 internship closed on October 10. All applicants for Fall 2021 will be notified of the status of their application during the week of October 25.

Please stay tuned for upcoming information on our Spring 2022 internship!
