Work on women’s issues, past, present, and future

We are now accepting applications for Summer and Fall 2014.

The Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, the historic headquarters of the National Woman’s Party, is currently looking for interns. Candidates must exhibit strong writing skills, attention to detail, interest in women’s issues, and relevant coursework or work experience.

The Sewall-Belmont House & Museum internships offer individuals the opportunity to grow professionally and personally through project-specific opportunities with staff in the areas of museum administration, research and interpretation, collections management, fundraising, education, communications and programs. Some projects are only open to students in specific disciplines. See below for details.

Collections Internship:

We are looking for graduate students with a background in museum studies or library and information science and experience with collections management to catalogue photographs, archival materials, artifacts, and update records in PastPerfect Museum Software.  Other projects include research, writing, and planning for new exhibitions and interpretation.

Archival Internship:

We are looking for a graduate student or recent graduate in Library Science to process part of our archival collection, following an established archival plan.  NWP organizational records from 1920-1970 need to be organized, processed, and re-housed.  The intern will be expected to create at least one draft finding aid.
