Header/Footer Internship

New Media Caucus is delighted to announce 2023 internship opportunities for undergraduate
and graduate students who would like to gain experience in curatorial practice at the
Header/Footer gallery.

The Header/Footer internship is offered during the fall and spring semesters, as well as during
the summer. It is compensated with academic credit hours. Applicants do not need a
background in art history to apply.
Internships require a commitment of at least 4 hours a week, and reference from the student’s
advisor or other faculty member. Applicants should have excellent communication and writing
skills, computer proficiency, basic design, and research skills.

The intern will work with H/F curator Rene G. Cepeda, and the job requirements will respond to
curatorial needs. The goal of this internship is to help individuals interested in museum careers
or related fields gain significant experience in one or more areas of museum practice, including
work with the collection, exhibitions, publications, and programs, and to encourage critical
engagement with the history and changing roles of virtual galleries in our communities today.

Application: For the application, you will need to prepare the following materials and submit them to
renecepeda@newmediacaucus.org. Deadline to apply: January 23, 2023.
Cover Letter: Along with your mailing address, email, and telephone information, include a
personal statement of no more than 500 words, which explains how an internship at
Header/Footer would fit with your background and career goals. If possible, mention specific
subjects, resources, or parts of the collections that are of particular interest. Describe what you
hope to learn from the internship.
Resume/Curriculum Vitae: Please limit resumes to one page or less.
Student Advisor or Faculty Member Reference: Please provide name and contact
information, including email.
Our curator will contact you to indicate if your internship is approved. At that time,
Header/Footer curatorial interns should register for independent study with their institution.
Header/Footer will assist with the process as necessary.
