Elizabeth Stafford Hutchinson Endowed Internship
The Elizabeth Stafford Hutchinson Endowed Internship (ESHIE) is offered once each summer.
This full-time, 12-week internship pays a $1,325 stipend to help defray cost of living in Washington, D.C. The internship was established by National Museum of Women in the Arts Texas State Committee in April 2010 to honor Elizabeth Hutchinson, long-time board member, Texas Committee founder, and Vice-President Emerita of the NMWA Board.
The Elizabeth Stafford Hutchinson Internship is an endowed internship open to students from Texas or currently attending a Texas college or university. Candidates must be interested in pursuing museum careers; they must be undergraduates who have completed at least their sophomore year in college, graduate students, or recent graduates with at least a 3.25 cumulative grade point average. First consideration will be given to a qualified student with ties to Texas. If no qualified candidate from/living in Texas applies, then the award will be granted to another qualified candidate regardless of state ties.
HOW TO APPLY:
You may apply for up to three internships per season. For each internship you apply to, you must include a cover letter, resume, two letters of recommendation, a transcript, and a writing sample. You must specify which endowed internship you would like to apply for in each cover letter. You may apply for multiple endowed internships by expressing interest in the cover letter, but you cannot be awarded more than one per season. Applications should upload all documents in PDF format in the electronic application.
If you choose to mail your recommendations and/or transcript, please send to:
