As part of its core mission to promote education and cultural understanding, FRAME offers internships to provide mentoring, training, and practical and professional experience to students and recent graduates in the context of a dynamic, international non-profit arts organization. Interns work directly with the FRAME, North America office in Los Angeles (residency not required) and with FRAME colleagues and advisors. Interns are appointed and supervised by the Director of FRAME, North America, Charlotte Eyerman. Much of FRAME’s work conducted with colleagues in FRAME museums nationally and internationally and with the FRAME office in Paris.
Internships are available by application only, are unpaid, and available for academic credit contingent on requirements of the students' university or college. FRAME internships are not available in the FRAME, France office nor do they imply affiliation with any FRAME museums. FRAME accepts applications from international students, though students must obtain the required documentation and permissions to live and work in the U.S. Many North American FRAME member museums also offer internships, which can be explored on their institutional websites.
