The Office of the Curator at the Supreme Court of the United States, Fall 2017 Curatorial Internships

Posted: May 15, 2017 at 3:57 pm

The Office of the Curator at the Supreme Court of the United States is currently accepting applications for Fall 2017 internships. For more than 40 years, interns have played an integral role in the Curator’s Office, contributing their skills and enthusiasm to completing substantive projects that assist the curatorial staff in fulfilling our mission to preserve the records and history of the Supreme Court and provide visitors with information on Court history and architecture. Additionally, all interns gain valuable public speaking and interpersonal skills by regularly conducting tours and Courtroom Lectures and by staffing a Visitor Desk.

A detailed description of the program and application instructions can be found on the Supreme Court’s website:

All applications and other required materials must be submitted by Thursday, June 15 to receive consideration for the fall.

Please note: Interns will gain an understanding of museum practices and procedures and receive a thorough introduction to the history and functions of the Supreme Court, however this is not a legal internship. It does not involve working with legal functions of the Court. Internships are unpaid. Interns are encouraged to pursue academic credit through their institutions of study and in consultation with the Supreme Court Internship Program.

Please submit questions regarding the Supreme Court Internship Program via web form or by phone at 202-479-3415.
