Undergraduate training programs, internships, and fellowships provide invaluable behind-the-scenes museum experience, offering access to museum resources and mentorship with staff and partners that are relevant for futures in the museum field and beyond.

The McMullan Family Foundation Summer Intensive
The McMullan Family Foundation Summer Intensive is a weeklong program exposing undergraduate students to museum professions through workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, field trips, and networking events.
The 2023 program returns to the theme of “The Museum Space,” which considers the museum’s relationship to real and imagined environments, both within and outside of its physical footprint. This year’s iteration puts particular emphasis on collaboration, networks, and community, while engaging with exhibitions on view featuring artists such as Gio Swaby, Kwame Brathwaite, Peter Hujar, Lui Shou-Kwan, Van Gogh, and more. This year’s program will run June 12–17, 2023.
Students who complete the summer intensive are eligible to apply for a two-year fellowship at the museum, a part-time opportunity to pursue alongside their academic programs.
The McMullan Family Foundation Summer Intensive and the McMullan Arts Leadership Initiative are supported by the James and Madeleine McMullan Family Foundation.
