Field Museum Women in Science Internships

Field Museum Women in Science (FMWIS) and Women's Board of The Field Museum are proud to offer the Women in Science Internships

The internships are hosted in many departments throughout the museum and aim to give young individuals the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in the sciences. The FMWIS Internship Program hosts three high school and three undergraduate paid interns for 6 weeks each summer. Applicants are welcome to apply to more than one project.

We aim to build a foundation and set the standard across the museum for diversity within the sciences through student internships. Interns will engage in collections-based research and practice communicating science to a broader community.

Applications are due each spring (specific dates announced each year).
