The objective of the Basque Internships is to provide an opportunity for up to four Basque Interns to participate in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Internship Program in New York. The Guggenheim Museum Internship Program offers practical training experience to students and recent graduates interested in pursuing careers in the arts and museum fields. Interns gain a broad understanding of how a particular department functions within the context of a major museum, as well as specific knowledge and skills related to that department’s activities. Interns are assigned to one department for the duration of their training, based on qualifications and interest. Under the supervision of designated staff mentors, interns complete individual projects, attend meetings, and participate in ongoing conversations and processes within their department.
Please see Internship Departments for more information.
Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, all Basque Internships will remain virtual this year. No travel to New York is expected or required.
