The Jimmy Jones Internship is designed to encourage the exploration of art museum careers by university students with diverse backgrounds who require supplementary income to participate in an unpaid internship. Students interested in a curatorial career will receive special consideration. A stipend of $2,500 is available each summer.

Each winter/spring, beginning in 2009, the Greg Cameron Intern will receive a stipend of $2,500.
