Internships

The New-York Historical Society offers internships in both our Museum and Library divisions for high school, college, and graduate-level students. From modeling creative exhibition layouts to researching with our curators and educators, our interns experience unparalleled career development and cultivate fruitful professional relationships.

College and Graduate Internships

Applicants who are selected to participate in this rewarding, yet demanding experience will be paid a stipend of $1,800 or receive academic credit, depending on the intern’s school requirements. The part-time spring internship program is hybrid and will run February 14 through April 22 (unless otherwise specified). Interns may work up to 120 hours throughout the duration of the program.

Requirements

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 Spring 2022 internship are now open, and will close on Sunday, January 30, at 11:59 pm ET.
