Warshawsky Fellowship – Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Cleveland Museum of Art (Summer 2019)

Thanks to the generosity of the Warshawsky family, the Cleveland Museum of Art is able to offer two paid summer fellowships for undergraduates. Art and community are at the forefront of the museum’s culture and central to its mission to be “for all the people forever.” We firmly believe that if we are to be a global leader among museums, but also remain relevant to our community, it is essential that we seek new perspectives on our multifaceted collection and bring new voices to our city. Designed to highlight what the CMA and the City of Cleveland have to offer those who may not be familiar with them, each Warshawsky Fellowship is granted to the nation’s top art history majors who reside outside Cleveland.

Summer 2019 fellowship positions are available in both the Prints, Drawings and Photographs curatorial department and the Collections Management division. Each fellow will be introduced to the vital behind-the-scenes work of the institution while they complete substantial CV-building projects that encourage cross-departmental collaboration.

Fellows can expect direct mentorship by their supervisors. They will also participate in experiences with other interns designed to offer an overview of the scope of a comprehensive museum like the CMA. Fellowship recipients receive a stipend of $3,000 for a 280-hour internship (June 4–July 26, 2019). Cost of travel and accommodations over the course of the fellowship is the responsibility of the fellow, but a few housing scholarships will be available to students who demonstrate significant financial need.
