Description/Mission statement:
The Multicultural Undergraduate Internships at the Getty are intended specifically for outstanding students who are members of groups currently underrepresented in museum professions and fields related to the visual arts: individuals of African American, Asian, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and Pacific Islander descent.

In order to increase diversity in the professions related to museums and the visual arts, the Getty is offering summer internships at the Getty Center and the Getty Villa to undergraduates of culturally diverse backgrounds.

Internships provide training and work experience in areas such as conservation, library collections, publications, museum education, curatorship, grants administration, public programs, site operations, and information technology.
