Position description

Established with the aim of increasing the outreach of Florida Museum programs across the UF campus, this internship award program seeks to support undergraduate students by facilitating their work on museum-based internship projects.

Internships are to be focused on gaining experience in collections work, laboratory analysis,and/or fieldwork. Awards supporting up to 80 hours of work during one semester will be funded.

There are two tracks in applications—TRACK A: for students with no prior research or museum experience who will select from a list of available projects; and TRACK B: for students with previous or ongoing experience who will submit a proposed project plan of their own and who already have a project advisor in the museum. If you have been awarded this internship in a previous semester, then you are not eligible to reapply.


Undergraduate students, including graduating seniors, enrolled at the University of Florida who can demonstrate how their involvement will expand the museum’s reach
