Elizabeth Stafford Hutchinson Endowed Internship

The Elizabeth Stafford Hutchinson Endowed Internship is offered once each summer.

This 40-hour per week, 12-week internship pays a $1,650 stipend to help defray cost of living in Washington, D.C. The internship was established by National Museum of Women in the Arts Texas State Committee in April 2010 to honor Elizabeth Hutchinson, long-time board member, Texas Committee founder, and Vice-President Emerita of the NMWA Board.

The Hutchinson internship is an endowed internship open to students from Texas or currently attending a Texas college or university. First consideration will be given to a qualified student with ties to Texas. If no qualified candidate from/living in Texas applies, then the award will be granted to another qualified candidate regardless of state ties.

  • Be interested in pursuing museum careers, and 
  • Have completed their sophomore year of undergraduate study, be a graduate student, or have recently graduated with at least a 3.25 cumulative grade point average.
