Field Museum Women in Science Internships

We are thrilled to be hosting Women in Science interns during the Summer. We’re accepting applications for the 2023 Women in Science (WIS) Internships.

The internship applicants should be prepared to be in person, not online. Interns are expected to work full-time, Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm (unless otherwise arranged with the supervisor). To be considered, applicants need to:

  • Be a high school or undergraduate student at the time of application
  • Be a talented and motivated individual interested in the sciences
  • Have an Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, or Michigan address to be considered.

For questions about your application or the internships program please contact Lesley de Souza,
