Internships and Fellowships

Update: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cleveland Museum of Art will not host its usual summer internship program in 2020. While the cancellation of this year’s program is deeply disappointing to the museum staff, who each year depend upon the revitalizing contributions of our interns, we will continue to monitor the situation and update this space as new information arises. As we weather this storm together, please revisit this page for future updates.

Student Guide Program

CMA Student Guides design tours demonstrating how works of art are relevant to how we see, how we think, and how we live. Guides will engage with staff at every level of the museum as they are trained in the design and delivery of 30-minute tours of the CMA’s collections. Beginning with a two-day summer training intensive, guides commit to a full academic year of biweekly on-site trainings as well as independent assignments. The program includes travel to other local and regional cultural institutions. Each spring guides are required to deliver no fewer than eight public tours or gallery experiences highlighting objects they have selected. Positions can be renewed annually.
