Spring 2022 Virtual Internships
The KHC is accepting applications for two student curatorial interns for the spring 2022 semester. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until February 14, 2022.
Applicants must be students currently enrolled at either QCC or another institution in museum and gallery studies, art and design, liberal studies, history, or a related discipline. During the Spring 2022 semester, the interns will review select KHC past exhibition catalogs to determine the best content to be showcased on the KHC’s website, as well as conduct other curatorial assignments related to the KHC’s two main physical exhibitions, as directed.
General Requirements: This is a part-time internship (ten hours per week) that runs from February 22, 2022 until May 17, 2022. Although the College’s campus remains partially open, all projects shall be conducted remotely and the interns shall complete a weekly timesheet to document all hours worked. Students are expected to virtually meet with the KHC’s Executive Director and the Center’s administrative staff each week to provide regular updates on their assigned projects. There is also the possibility for occasional in-person work at the KHC’s physical building, subject to CUNY’s coronavirus campus accessibility and social distancing requirements.
Stipend: In order to receive the stipend, QCC requires interns to provide proof of authorization to work in the United States (US) prior to beginning the internship, including completion of the IRS Form W9 (https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf). Upon completion of the projects and tasks by the assigned due dates, interns will then receive a $1,000 stipend in two payments. International students should contact QCC’s Center for International Affairs, Immigration & Study Abroad for additional guidance. Candidates unable to complete the required paperwork are eligible to participate as unpaid interns.
Application Deadline: Applicants must apply by Feb 14, 2022 by e-mailing a letter of interest and brief resume to KHC@qcc.cuny.edu.
