Diversity Internship Program
The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission in partnership with the Pennsylvania Federation of Museums and Historical Organizations has created The Diversity Internship Program to introduce students to professional opportunities in museums with the goal of increasing the diversity of professional employees throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Two student internships will be funded at the Philadelphia Museum through this program.

Interns will work for twelve weeks, from May 17 to August 6, 2010. All interns are expected to work five 7.5 hour days per week; some positions may involve evening and weekend work. Diversity Interns will be paid a $4,000 summer stipend. Applicants must be students in good standing during the spring 2010 semester and be planning to return to school for the fall 2010 semester.
