Internships and Fellowships

Become an Intern or Fellow at the Taubman

Learn how a museum really works, create valuable art world connections, and gain professional mentors with a Taubman Museum of Art paid college internship or graduate/post-graduate fellowship. 

Internships and fellowships begin with an overview of Museum operations, then dive into hands-on, cross-departmental projects connected to collections, exhibitions, and programming. Internships and fellowships are paid, and may be eligible for earning credit through your academic institution.
