INTERNSHIPS

The Museum’s Charles D. Zucker Jewish Studies Internship Program provides opportunities for college and graduate students interested in gaining museum, non-profit, and Jewish community work experience. Internships are generally one semester or summer in length. Duties vary based on the needs of the Museum and the skills and interests of the interns. Intern projects can involve research, writing, artifact care, business organization, and event and program planning. Modest stipends are available. Interested college students can contact the Museum at info@msje.org to inquire about availability.

The Zucker Internship Program is made possible by a generous grant from the Charles D. Zucker Advised Fund of the Louisiana Jewish Endowment Foundation.
