Multicultural Summer Internships at the Getty Museum

In order to increase diversity in the professions related to museums and the visual arts, the Getty is offering summer internships at the Getty Center and Villa to undergraduates of culturally diverse backgrounds. The Multicultural Undergraduate Internships at the Getty are intended specifically for outstanding students who are members of groups currently underrepresented in museum professions and fields related to the visual arts and humanities: individuals of African American, Asian, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and Pacific Islander descent. Internships provide training and work experience in areas such as conservation, library collections, publications, museum education, curatorship, grants administration, public programs, site operations, and information technology. Orientation activities and field trips provide students with broad exposure to career possibilities in museums and visual arts organizations. Candidates are sought from all areas of undergraduate study, including the sciences and technology, and are not required to have demonstrated a previous commitment to the visual arts.
