Thanks to the generosity of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Michael C. Carlos Museum offers paid summer internships for Emory University students. The internship is open to graduate and undergraduate students. Interns are selected by a committee of Museum staff and faculty advisors. The internships are ten weeks in length, and students are paid a stipend of $5,000. This summer’s internships begin on May 21, though some flexibility in scheduling is possible. Deadline for applying for the Mellon Internship is February 16, 2018.

Do you have a desire to strengthen your skills in public speaking, group management, and storytelling? Would you like to share your love of art with others?
At the Carlos, our Student Guides learn how to do all of that and more! Once you complete training that is designed to accommodate student schedules, you will lead groups on tours through our temporary exhibitions. This year student guides will focus on our upcoming exhibition by Dr. Fahamu Pecou, DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance. Students must be able to commit to attending all training sessions, and leading tours for the duration of the exhibition.
Training and practice tour sessions for DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance will take place on Fridays from 1:00 - 2:30 pm, on the following dates: 11/2, 11/9, 11/30, 12/7, 1/11, 1/18, 1/25.
If you are interested in being a spring 2019 Student Guide, or for more information, contact Katie Ericson at 404-727-2363 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, October 26, 2018.
DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance by Dr. Fahamu Pecou is organized by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston, in collaboration with the Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory Univeristy.
