Wichita State University students are invited to apply for paid internships, which offer valuable experience in the everyday workings of a university art museum. These internships offer students invaluable experiential learning that is informative on both intellectual and practical levels. Tasks may include assisting with research for exhibitions, cataloging works of art, helping with publicity, participating in exhibition installations, working on programs, and giving exhibition tours. Internships for course credit in fulfillment of curricular requirements are available in coordination with many academic departments. To apply, please send a current resume accompanied by a cover letter summarizing your past experiences related to art and/or museum work, your goals for the future, and an explanation of why you would like to intern at a university modern and contemporary art museum. Please note: We strongly recommend visiting the Museum's exhibitions and exploring this website before writing the cover letter.
The Kouri Assistantship Endowment and the Mary Joan Waid Exhibition Student Support Fund provide 2-3 paid internships each semester to qualifying students. We would like to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude to Dr. Sam and Jacque Kouri and Mary Joan Waid for their dedication to life-changing student experiences at WSU and investment in the Ulrich as a training ground for future cultural professionals.
