FIDM Museum accepts one intern to work in the curatorial department every summer. This intern is assigned a project to complete within the time-frame of the internship. Projects may include writing catalog descriptions in the PastPerfect database, digitizing a portion of the collection, researching new acquisitions, or other curatorial assignments. Previous interns have catalogued croquis and digitized The Helen Larson Historic Fashion Collection.
Interns work closely with FIDM Museum staff and receive valuable hands-on training in collection management and museum practices. We are looking for students enrolled in a graduate program, or with plans to enroll immediately following the internship, in a field related to fashion history and/or museum studies. Summer interns must commit to working 30-40 hours per week, during business hours (9:00 am - 6:00 pm Monday-Friday). This internship is unpaid.
