NMAAHC is pleased to announce new internship opportunities in Conservation Studies funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This is open to students currently enrolled in, or recent graduates of a degree program at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and other institutions who have an evident interest in the conservation of African American heritage. The internships will be funded by a Mellon grant and housed in the NMAAHC’s Office of Curatorial Affairs. The conservation interns will be mentored and supervised by the Museum’s Conservator of Objects and will be located at one of the two NMAAHC sites: the headquarters in Washington D.C. or the Pennsy Collections and Support Center, Landover, MD.
