The Phillips Collection Introduces a Paid Internship

In 2019, The Phillips Collection is introducing the Sherman Fairchild Fellowship, a comprehensive program that focuses on handson experience, mentoring, and professional development, creating greater equity and diversity within the museum. All are welcome to apply for the fellowship, and the Phillips will select up to four fellows. Successful applicants will demonstrate how they will contribute to the diversity of the institution, including identifying with an ethnic, gender, or ability group that is underrepresented, or having overcome a disadvantage or other impediment to success in the museum field. The fellows will each receive a stipend and the program will last for twelve months. Following the fellowship, the Phillips will continue to engage the fellows through mentoring and networking.

Museums are places for engagement, reflection, appreciation, and learning. This happens not only in the galleries, but also behind the scenes with our staff and board. As a museum, an art organization, and an institution located in our nation’s capital, we are in a unique position to employ people from a wide variety of backgrounds to ensure that multiple perspectives are represented at the table. By including a multiplicity of backgrounds, opinions, and insights to a discussion, we will be better equipped to move our museum forward into its centennial year and beyond.

The Phillips Collection paid internship program is open to junior and senior undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates. Applications are accepted for the summer, fall, and spring semesters.
