Collections Internships at the Wende Museum

The Wende Museum is pleased to offer Collections Internships for currently enrolled undergraduate or graduate students, as well as recent graduates. Positions are part-time, unpaid, and available for course credit. Interns will help prepare the collection to be moved into our new home at the former National Guard Armory. Applications are accepted year-round with internships typically beginning in January, June, and September.


Internship Program

The Wende offers internship opportunities for college and graduate students interested in careers in museums. Based upon their academic training, interests and language skills, as well as the availability of projects, interns work in one of the Wende’s departments—collections, research or administration. Most projects require reading knowledge of German or Russian. Applicants of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Paid internships are offered only through work-study arrangements with host universities. Please contact your internship office at your institution if you are interested in receiving credit.
