UMMA Applebaum Interns

In 2022 UMMA will host two UMMA Applebaum Interns, who will join a community of Applebaum Fellows — motivated individuals embodying an entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to reach a great personal and community potential.

American Association of Museum Directors Intern

The University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) Internship is a 12-week program that provides a dynamic opportunity for students—especially those from underrepresented backgrounds—who have begun to solidify their academic interests and explore potential career paths. The intern will be paired with a mentor—a member of UMMA’s senior leadership team—who will direct their activities and provide overall counsel on their professional development. The UMMA AAMD Intern will attend the American Alliance of Museums’ annual conference in Boston from May 19-22, 2022. The UMMA AAMD intern will join a cohort of ten AAMD Interns who are participating at museums across the U.S.
