The Dangremond Museum Studies Internship

Overview

The Dangremond Museum Studies Internship at the Connecticut Historical Society is an opportunity for students to gain exposure to and experience in many aspects of the functions and daily operation of a history museum, library, and research center. The intent is to help students:

  • Apply the theoretical learning from their liberal arts education to a related nonprofit
  • Work closely with professionals to gain a deeper knowledge of the museum, library, and history fields
  • Gain broader exposure to opportunities beyond college and the classroom
  • Acquire first-hand access to a nationally-recognized institution and its renowned collection
  • Obtain the hands-on experience and skills valued by employers and graduate schools
  • Meet and network with CHS employees, interns, and volunteers
  • Work as part of a team and gain a broad understanding of how different departments function within an institution

Interns must complete 250 hours on task (generally 30 hours/week [including unpaid lunch hour] x 10 weeks) and are eligible for a $1,700 stipend.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2019 Dangremond Museum Studies Internship.  Information about the 2020 summer internship will be available in January 2020.

The CHS will be open November 11 in honor of Veterans Day. Admission is free to veterans.
