One placement available.


The Education Department of The Frick Collection is now accepting applications from M.A. students for the spring 2020 Ayesha Bulchandani Graduate Internship Program.

The intern’s primary responsibilities will include organizing archival education material, researching the history of education programs at the Frick, and assisting with additional research projects, as needed. The intern will also participate in the production of public programs for the Frick’s many audiences, working closely with all members of the Education Department. This internship provides a superb opportunity for students to learn about museum education in a small, dynamic department.


The Ayesha Bulchandani Internship is open to current M.A. students pursuing degrees in museum education, art history, education, museum studies, or other fields related to The Frick Collection. Ideal candidates for this internship will have a background in museum education, strong attention to detail, and the ability to work independently.

Applicants who are foreign nationals may be required to obtain a visa to participate in a paid internship in the U.S. The Frick Collection partners with an organization that helps facilitate visas in these situations. In many cases, The Frick will cover the associated costs of obtaining an intern’s visa. If an internship applicant is accepted to our program, we will provide them with the requisite details regarding obtaining a visa. Applicants are responsible for their own housing and travel arrangements.

Time Commitment

The internship will span one semester in spring 2020. Activities will be carried out no less than two days a week.


In addition to the other benefits associated with an internship at The Frick Collection, a stipend intended to help defray living costs during the internship period is available for Education interns under the Ayesha Bulchandani Internship Program for Graduate Students. The stipend award is $2,500.

Please note that applications to multiple departments at The Frick Collection are not accepted; please apply to only one department.
