Students in the Graduate Group in Archaeology, Classics and History of Art may apply for curatorial internships. These internships are for advanced students. They carry stipends of $15,000 and require 17.5 hours per week working on supervised projects in the Art and Artifact Collections for one semester and in one of six participating institutions for a second semester. The participating institutions are: the Philadelphia Museum of Art, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Institute of Contemporary Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, American Philosophical Society, and the Library Company of Philadelphia. Supplementary application forms are required for these awards. Applications will be reviewed by the steering committee of the Graduate Group, which will nominate up to two students for each award to the Committee on Graduate Awards.
Since 2005, NEH Interns have been awarded to Ben Anderson, Nicholas Blackwell, Matthew Feliz, Crystal Fritz, Marie Gasper-Hulvat, Johanna Gosse, Andrea Guzzetti, Sarah Hafner, Cathy Person, and Lesley Shipley.
