Summer Internship Program


“I participated in the Peabody's summer internship program and assisted with research in the Meso Lab. Working at the Peabody is a unique, engaging opportunity for students and has been one of the best parts of my college experience.”

— Elizabeth

Internships are supervised by the Academic Partnerships Department, with support from Museum professional staff.
