The Morgan Conservatory Internship Program has been an integral part of the organization since its creation in 2008.
The Morgan provides several areas of study for interns including studio, garden, marketing, development, workshops, and gallery.
Interns are fully immersed in programming at the Morgan and are given direct instruction and supervision by dedicated staff members. This program provides rich educational and practical value through project-based work.
We are committed to ensuring that our interns leave the Morgan with the skills and knowledge of their area of interest and a fuller understanding of papermaking and community arts.
Applicants can specify which area of interest they prefer at the time of submission.
