Who should apply?
We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and academic disciplines to apply. The Dufresne Internship is open to undergraduate juniors and seniors, recent graduates, graduate students, or doctoral students. See this year’s project for preferred qualifications.
Stipend – $4,000
Length of Internship
Interns are expected to complete 400 hours of work onsite at the C.M. Russell Museum during the summer season. A typical intern schedule consists of 10 weeks of full time work (40 hours per week). Start and end dates are flexible in order to prevent conflict with interns’ academic schedules.
All applicants are asked to submit a cover letter/statement of intent, resume, and two letters of recommendation from current or past academic references. Your statement of interest should be one page or less and should highlight relevant coursework and experience, as well as outline what you hope to contribute to the museum and what you would like to gain in return.
Please send applications to Kathryn Kramer at the following address:
C.M. Russell Museum
400 13th Street North
Great Falls, Montana 59401
All application materials, including letters of recommendation, must be emailed or postmarked no later than March 26, 2021. Selected applicants will be contacted for interviews within a few weeks following the application deadline. Interns are responsible for making their own housing and transportation arrangements in Great Falls, Montana; museum staff can provide housing suggestions.
