Keck Summer Research Fellowships
The Keck Undergraduate Research Program at Occidental College will be offering four summer research fellowships in 2014 to support student research projects in the arts, humanities, and social sciences that make use of archives, museums, and other local arts and cultural institutions. The program is highly selective, and some preference is given to students who are completing their junior year and have had no prior summer fellowship support. Students who are selected will participate in the ten-week Summer Research Program offered by the Undergraduate Research Center.
Occidental College / LACMA Internship
The Keck Undergraduate Research Program announces the Occidental College/Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Internship in the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department for students seeking experience in arts and cultural institutions. The internship is a paid, nine-month internship that begins around October 1, 2014.
The Occidental College/LACMA intern will provide general assistance to the Curatorial staff while also conducting research and working on organization in connection with the permanent collection along with related projects in the Photography Department. The internship supports academic development, with opportunities to gain experience specific to photography, and to become familiar with a broad understanding of museum practices. In addition to permanent collection and day-to-day activities, the intern will be engaged in a variety of duties relating to the internal organization of special exhibitions. As interns, students will gain valuable hands on experience and will be able to identify potential career pathways in the arts that are often dependent on building professional networks.
Interested students should demonstrate knowledge of, and interest in, art history, museum studies, and/or history. Excellent organizational and writing skills are necessary, as is the ability to work collaboratively with the Registrar, Conservation, and Education teams. Students should have the ability to work on projects with limited supervision, and they should be prompt and reliable. All qualified Occidental College students are invited to apply (must be juniors or seniors during the year of the internship). The Oxy/LACMA Intern will receive a stipend of $1750 each semester (for a total of $3500) which will be paid in biweekly installments.
The application deadline for 2014-15 has passed. Questions about the KCETLink Internship should be directed to Prof. Lisa Sousa, Keck Undergraduate Research Program, Project Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
