Being an intern at the Wattis is an opportunity to experience a contemporary arts institution firsthand.

There is no set application deadline for an internship, and inquiries are welcome throughout the year. We offer internships roughly coinciding with each academic term (January to May and September to December) and over the summer (June through August). The internships are designed to cover a three-month period, with a minimum commitment of three days per week. The Wattis is unable to offer compensation at this time, but is happy to arrange school credit and can offer a travel and meal stipend.
