From Laura Pass Barry, Associate Curator at Colonial Williamsburg:
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a grant to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in support of curatorial internships. The money will be used to fund a total of 12 internships over the course of the next few years.
Three 3-month internships and one 12-month internship will be available in 2012 for students interested in the study of material culture. Each intern will work directly with a Colonial Williamsburg curator and focus on a specific aspect of study in the fields of fine art, decorative art, folk art, architectural collections or archaeological collections. Applicants should be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in a related field and have completed at least two years of academic credit.

Search “current opportunities” for positions: Intern A-Curatorial and/or Intern A-Curatorial (3 month position). Applications will be accepted through Friday, February 10, 2012. Candidates will be notified in early April.
