Internship Grants

Alice Williams Carson Endowed Summer Internship at the Toledo Museum of Art

The Toledo Museum of Art and Smith College offer a summer internship for qualified Smith students interested in exploring a career in art museums. The Alice Williams Carson (Smith '34) Endowed Internship for 2013 will be a curatorial internship dedicated to one major project. This is a fabulous opportunity to work with an outstanding museum collection and an exemplary organization. Carolyn Putney, their chief curator of Asian Art, is the contact for the internship (cputney@toledomuseum.org), but the projects each summer have ranged widely. Both Art History & Studio students have held it in past.

To apply, students should send hard copy of their resumes and a cover letter to the Alice Williams Carson Endowed Internship to the Department of Art Office, Hillyer Hall, clearly marked with Carson Internship on the envelope.
