The Missouri Humanities Council and the Missouri Association of Museums and Archives, in partnership with the St. Joseph Museums, Inc., invites undergraduate and graduate college students from diverse backgrounds with an interest in the museum field, to apply for a paid summer internship opportunity in St. Joseph, Missouri. Sponsored by the Missouri Humanities Council and coordinated through MAMA, the newly-created internship program is designed to provide meaningful work experiences for students from diverse backgrounds interested in the museum profession.
Located in St. Joseph, Missouri, the St. Joseph Museum will oversee one Diversity Internship during the Summer of 2019. The internship will provide opportunities in interpretation, educational programming, exhibit design, marketing, collections management, and non-profit business management.
