McDermott Internships

Made possible by the Eugene McDermott Education Fund

The Dallas Museum of Art offers eight nine-month paid internship positions in the Education and Curatorial Divisions, open to individuals with undergraduate or graduate degrees who are interested in exploring museum careers. McDermott Interns work closely with staff throughout the Museum and are provided opportunities for individual contributions, allowing them to gain an in-depth and well-rounded perspective on museum work.

The 2014-2015 McDermott Internship Application period has closed as of March 7, 2014. Please view the 2014-2015 McDermott Internship Flyer for complete information on this year's program.

Staff will now begin reviewing all applications and selecting candidates for interviews. Those who pass this initial screening will be contacted to schedule an interview in April, either in person or by phone. We then hope to make our selections and fill each position by the end of May, at which point we will notify all applicants of their status.
