Get Involved

The Colby College Museum of Art is committed to offering students professional development and mentorship opportunities here at Colby and through a regional, national, and global network of institutional partners.

A variety of internship opportunities exist here at the Colby Museum and our partner institutions. In the spring semester, we invite you to attend our informational session to hear more about these positions and other ways you can get involved. All internships are paid. No prior experience is expected. If you are interested in applying to an internship, check out this page. Please submit a cover letter, résumé, and names of three references to Justin McCann, unless otherwise noted.

In concordance with the Museum’s commitment to serve the Colby community, the Museum Student Advisory Board programs events specifically tailored to students and student groups, promote the Museum and its events across campus, and advise staff on the interests of the student body. Learn more about joining the Student Advisory Board here.
