The Robert A. Facchina Italian Legacy Research Grant Program offers a paid summer internship for a talented Museum Studies student with an interest in Italian and Italian American history and culture.
The selected college or graduate student will enjoy an immersive internship experience working under the guidance of the museum staff. The student will be offered hands-on opportunities to grow in experience in collections management, curatorial studies, museum marketing, and general museum management.
The work may include: creating and implementing databases for the collection; creating strategies for the museum’s reach, improving the volunteer guide experience, and helping organize special
events. Excellent research, writing, and presentation skills are required.
The recipient will be awarded a $5,000 stipend for the part-time summer 2022 internship. Work will be conducted both at the museum in Washington, D.C. and remotely. Applicants must be enrolled in an academic institution located within 75 miles of Washington, D.C. or have a permanent residence within that area. Candidates must possess a demonstrated enthusiasm for our mission to educate, celebrate and promote the Italian and Italian American culture, and the creativity and skills to help further that mission.
