Colby Museum Internships 


Summer 2024 Student Opportunities

We offer a variety of full-time internship opportunities for Colby students over the summer. All positions are designed to give Colby students an opportunity to develop skills and complete projects under the supervision of museum staff members in various departments. These paid opportunities are part of a holistic cohort program offering mentorship, networking, and professional development. Housing is included. Openings are available in the following departments:


  • Academic Engagement
  • Collections
  • Community Collaboration and Visitor Engagement
  • Curatorial (Two openings)
  • Exhibitions and Publications
  • Museum Development

All experiences introduce students to the museum’s mission and includes opportunities to visit cultural institutions, learn about current issues and careers in the museum field, and strengthen professional and networking skills. Our student opportunities are paid, and no prior experience is expected.

Museum openings are advertised here, in ColbyNow, and via posters around campus. All positions accept application through Workday. For more information about how to apply, please visit the Colby student employment page here
