Are you an artist, writer, thinker, or designer? Interested in finding out about careers in museums? Apply to the High School Internship Program at The Met to meet experts, find mentors, make friends, gain professional experience, and more.
Internships for College and Graduate Students are also available.
Explore museum careers alongside your peers in our paid program held from November to June. This opportunity is for any student in grade 11 or 12 at a New York City Department of Education Title I high school. If you are a junior or senior at any New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut high school or home school, you can apply for an unpaid opportunity to connect with Museum staff as you develop professional skills for 50 to 100 hours during either the fall or spring semester.
If you are a student at a New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut high school or home school and are in grade 11 or 12 during the school year prior to the internship, you can join other teens for a paid five-week program that will take you behind the scenes, connect you with Museum staff, and help you develop professional skills and experience. Students who are juniors and seniors during the school year prior to the internship, and who attend a high school or home school in or reside in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, can apply for an unpaid opportunity to connect with Museum staff as they develop professional skills for 50 to 100 hours during the summer.
Support for High School Internships is provided by Mr. and Mrs. Marvin H. Schein, Joseph and Sylvia Slifka Fund for High School Internships, The Pinkerton Foundation, Gregory and Susan Palm, The Billy Rose Foundation, Inc., The Zeldin Family Foundation, and gifts in memory of Joe Rothenberg.
