Freelance Grant Writer
AD&A Museum Undergraduate Internship
Background: In 2012, the AD&A Museum initiated a dynamic undergraduate internship program in order to fulfill its goal of engaging with members of our campus community and the greater Santa Barbara area. The Museum has since partnered with various institutions promoting access to education, arts, and culture in Santa Barbara (Isla Vista Youth Project, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Lum Art Zine), as well as with university departments (UCSB Library, Special Research Collections), to provide interns with a wide range of learning opportunities that contribute to their academic and professional development. Moreover, interns can also work within the Museum, as positions are made available in various sectors – Curatorial, Registration and Collections Management, Communications and Programming, and in the Architecture and Design Collection.
Requirements: The AD&A Museum Internship Seminar (ARTHI192A/B) is a requirement of the Internship Program. This course aims to lay the theoretical and practical foundation for the pursuit of future work and studies in museums through class assignments and discussions, guest lectures, field trips, and outreach initiatives. Interns must thus attend the weekly classes and fulfill the seminar tasks, in addition to participating in museum events and conducting their individual internships. Interns are required to commit to the Program for the full school year. This position requires someone who is personable, collaborative, well-organized, accountable, and enthusiastic. Priority will be given to applicants who express an interest in the visual arts, cultural research, and educational outreach, as well as those with a cumulative GPA of 3.0+. All majors are welcome to apply.
Application available here. Deadline for 2021-22 is May 14.
